'O Mauna Loa Ko Makou Kuahiwi La'a. Mauna Loa, Our Sacred Mountain. July 22, 1999. Acrylic on canvas ~ 39 3/4" x 78 1/4". Hanger bars in African Wenge.


First exhibited at the WM Keck Observatory building in Hawaii, this very large canvas depicts the Southern sky over Mauna Loa as seen from snowy Mauna Kea. With over 1,200 accurately placed stars including the Southern Cross (just above Mauna Loa) and Maui's Hook, it was a hit with the astronomers!
