Kane & Kanaloa

First, a mini lesson in Hawaiian pronunciation: There is a break after every vowel. Every vowel. If there are several vowels together, each one is pronounced. Thus Kane is kah+nae. This post is about Ka*ne and Ka*na*lo*a, brothers who walked from one end of O*a*hu to the other, leaving streams of water (wa*i) to mark their passing.



Above the auditorium doors you see the Hawaiian god, Kane, and his little brother Kanaloa bring forth water from the rocks and creating Manoa spring. This mural was painted in 1952 by David Asherman. For more stories about Kane & Kanaloa, click here.

Posted for Jientje’s Photo Challenge called “Opening Doors“
The idea is to post pictures of doors, or details of doors.
It has to be your own picture, no stealing from Mr Google!
That’s the only rule!
