About the Iconography:

The small icons used in this website to designate chapters and other sections are drawn from the many petroglyphs found throughout the Hawaiian Islands. Pacific Worlds uses the same set of petroglyphs on all our Hawaiian Islands sites. However, in each site, these icons are colored to represent that particular island. All Hawaiian islands have a color associated with them, which derives from a particular flower special to that island.

A useful source on Hawaiian petroglyphs is Hawaiian Petroglyphs, by J. Halley Cox with Edward Stasack, Honolulu: Bishop Museum Press, 1970.
