Continuing with the art of Herb Kane. I previously posted on the painting of the Heiau Pu'ukohola here.
This depicts a ceremony happening at the Pu'ukohola heiau.
Keoua, paramount chief of the southern provinces of Hawai’i Island, disheartened by the loss of a third of his army in a volcanic explosion, accepted Kamehameha’s invitation to talk peace. But as his canoe fleet arrived below Pu‘ukohola Heiau, tempers flared; someone threw a spear and in the ensuing fight Keoua and the others in his canoe were killed. Their remains were taken to the heiau as offerings to the god of war, Kukailimoku.
This may not be of interest to all; however, to artists...you can appreciate the artwork and time and tediousness of doing a piece such as this. For those who enjoy tales of old Hawaii...interesting.
