“Harmony of Paradise”
The Kahala Hotel & Resort just completed the installation of a spectacular Lythraceae wood carving in the main lobby across from the elevators. The artifact is 13 feet high by 7 feet wide and it weighs 2,200 pounds.
The carving took over a year to complete and the artist created the atmosphere of a Hawaiian resort. The carvings are soft and tender, but strong enough to express the respect of the nature and history of Hawaii. The two pineapples represent “Happiness of Hawaii” and the two tropical birds represent “Harmony of living together”.
