This original artwork is part of the Fishpond Legends:
All fishponds have guardian spirits. They are shape changers that can take multiple forms. They are often mo'o, giant lizards. Mo'o were both benevolent and terrifying. They did not like to see unkindness, greed or haughtiness. There are many kinds of mo'o. Fishpond mo'o were female.
