Halalu (Shark) Suncatcher
Remember the Halalu bait-ball at Kaimana Beach last summer? (Not to mention the reef sharks it also attracted to the shoreline)…
This was how Lauren Trangmar’s mind recorded the first magical experience she had with this amazing phenomenon while ocean swimming. In much the same way that light in the water aids visibility and the magic of such encounters, when the light shines through this window suncatcher sticker, the drawing is made visible and rainbows appear like magic!
