This artwork is a memorial to a friend's daughter, Hina, who passed away at 2.5 years old in 2014. Why moons? Hina's full (first) name is Hinaaiinameleonalani, which means "Hina who is nourished by the songs of the heavens." In Hawaiian mythology, Hina is the goddess of the moon.

This friend would bring Hina to look at the moon every night (and sing Laurie Berkner's "Moon, moon, moon") and talk about which moon it was on the Hawaiian moon calendar. This particular artwork represents an image of Hina being greeted on the other side by lots of other little children who were getting ready to go to Earth at some point and wanted to ask her what it was like, as dreamed by another close family friend.
