"The Hawk Soars with the Winds"
— by sculptor, Kim Duffett —Envisioned on a grand scale, these three awe-inspiring figures in bronze are dancing hula kahiko, the ancient style of Hawaiian dance. The two female dancers, spirits of the wind, represent the dance and chant of Hawaiian hula. Together they are the winds that uplift the mighty 'lo, the Hawaiian hawk, our central male dancer, who represents the spirit of Hawai?i poised to take flight. These images pay tribute to the importance of dance, chant and song in the rebirth and growth of Hawaiian culture. Together they celebrate the power of the hula connecting us with the spirit of the land, the ?Āina, that is our Hawaii.
