"Kane-Hekili" watercolor and pastel by Kauai artist, Joanna Carolan. Limited edition giclee comes in double white mat. Kane-hekili is one of many Hawaiian gods of thunder and lightning. He appeared to those who worshipped him as a man. One side of his body was light colored or white while the other side was dark colored or black. He stood with his feet on the earth and his head touched the clouds. The last chief to rule Maui, Kahekili, belonged to the thunder god family. Kahekili was tattooed on one side of his body to show his allegiance to the thunder god.
