Product description:In the 1950s Duke Kahanamoku won a number of gold medals in the summer Olympics and became a world renowned 'water man'. He was famous also for spreading the sport of surfing around the world. Later, Duke became the official "Ambassador of Aloha", and "Mayor of Waikiki". There was back then a war memorial, salt water, Olympic size pool and stadium called 'The Natatorium' where Duke trained for his Olympic performances. It was open to the public and a wonderful venue with beautiful architectural arches at the front. It stands in horrible disrepair today, but the arches remain as testimony to it's former grandeur. One evening I was there enjoying a beautiful sunset and photographed the Natatorium arches against the sunset. On another occasion I photographed the statue of Duke at Waikiki beach. In Photoshop I removed the background clutter from Duke's statue, then overlaid the statue image on the Natatorium image to create this fine art image. This offering is a giclee print on Premier Art Canvas with a lab tested colorfast rating of 200+ years at 16x20 inches, and mounted on acid free Gator board ready to frame. Larger sizes are available.
