Exhibit Spotlights Rare Ku Images

ShareThisThree far-flung images of the Hawaiian god, Ku, are united in the current exhibit at Bishop Museum's Hawaiian Hall. The last remaining images of their kind, these carvings weigh up to 800 pounds each and originally left Hawai`i in the 1830's. HPR's Noe Tanigawa reports on why their brief homecoming is so important.

"E Ku `Ana Ka Paia: Unification, Responsibility and the Ku Images" unites three carvings of the Hawaiian god, Ku, at the Bishop Museum. On Wednesday July 14th, 6 pm at the Museum, master carver Rocky Jensen and scholar Lucia Jensen discuss the origins and artistry of the Ku images. The images will be on display through October 4th.
