|Before the great peleleu war canoes of King
Kamehameha were built, (huge double hulled
canoes, with sloop style sails, mounted cannon
and some with rudders), I can't help but imagine
that the great Hawaiian warrior king would have
experimented first, on more traditionally built craft.
Before anything else, (it is just my personal
belief), he would have mounted a cannon on his
"first available favored craft." I can just see the
great Kamehameha, without even saying a word,
pointing to a cannon and then pointing to the bow
of HIS " personal " canoe. I can see it all
This piece of art is about such a canoe....a canoe
that I've always had in my heart. It's a drawing
I've always wanted to do. I truly believe that
somewhere....in time....while the great peleleu
canoes were being built ....there was a canoe....
that fit the description of "doing something first"!
