Closeup of "Kulia"

This sculpture is made from ceramic and palm fronds. Christine worked with her dear friend, Makamai, a kumu of hula and hawaiian studies, to learn the art of palm frond sculpting...how to soak and knead the frond in your hand to make it pliable. When you have it at the right position, it will dry that way. The pose is reminiscent of a hula pose, not an exact, but almost as if the dancer is getting ready to start her hula.
