Technique: Three layers of laminated, airbrushed and painted glass tiles
DESCRIPTION: Retaining a sense of Hawai’i’s first Olympic size pool, Waikui is comprised of two overlaying water images. The bottom is the historic pool and subtle swimming lanes; the transparent top is an ocean water image symbolizing the
meeting of two waters. O’ahu is known for being the "meeting place"; Waikui is an old place name on the Big Island where a sandalwood forest stream once flowed into the ocean.
