Hawaiian Art depicting the Goddess Pele
The Hawaiian goddess Pele is known for both her immense beauty and her fierce volcanic power, she is loved, feared, and most of all respected more than any other Polynesian god!
This painting depicts Pele in profile with an indigenous flower in her ear, in the background there is an active lava flow of Pa-hoehoe pouring down and as her temper increases the lava turns to `A`a
This painting is a small 5"x7" but due to its subject matter and detail it is by no means inferior to larger paintings of the same theme. This painting is sure to draw in viewers and make them contemplate the significance of pele and what she might be mad about.
