Thirty Six Views of Diamond Head

Diamond Head allegedly got its name from the "diamonds" found at its base by sailors during the whaling era. The "diamonds" were actually volcanic debris.
The Hawaiian name "Leahi" is roughly translated "the brow of the Ahi" because of its resemblance to the brow of the tuna fish. Ahi being the Hawaiian name for tuna.
This series of photos pays tribute to the famous Japanese Ukiyo-e master Hokusai who created a legendary series of 36 views of Mt. Fuji.
A lesser known set of thirty-six views of Fuji was also created by Hiroshige another Ukiyo-e master.
Hokusai's "Great Wave off Kanagawa" is the best known of the 36 views and is one of the most iconic art masterpieces in the world.
