Kehua • Ghost

by


When we were children playing outside at night, the only way our parents could get us inside the house was to warn us that the kehua would get us. I would run so fast that my feet would not touch the ground. I have never seen one before, never been harmed by one, but it has always haunted me. So I created the kehua and as it’s creator, he is my child. This is the very first one and I will now do a series.
