Edward Colarik's Hawaiian Art

IANCIENT HAWAIIAN BRONZE CHESS SETE

Edward Colarik captures the magic of the Hawaiian Islands'romantic past. Their spirit is alive with King Kamehameha I: The first to unify and rule the Hawaiian Islands: Queen Kaahumanuwho became Kuhina-Nui (Premier); the Kahunas (Priests), keepers of the wisdom of time and the Gods,the great Warrior Chiefs; and the spirit of Hawaii, the Hula Dancers. Each sculpture is cast in bronze using the lost wax process;they require extensive work and are very time consuming. The sculptures are historically accurate. Note the great details.The king stands 3.5. It features an original map of the Hawaiian Islands,done for Captain Cook by William Bligh of Mutiny On The Bounty, plus 32 bronze hand cast chess pieces. Because the set is Bronze; it can be past on from generationto generation. A great gift, a great heirloom, a great piece of history.

 5 BRONZE  KING KAMEHAMEHA SCULPTURES

 

FEATHERED CAPE

The bronze figures were commissioned by David Murdock.  It took Edward about four months to complete the figures. He also designed the marble bases. They have all been delivered to Hawaii.  The pieces are of King Kamehameha I,  1759? - 1819,  who was the first king to unify and rule the Hawaiian Islands. King Kamehameha was very large man, some say seven feet tall, weighting 300 hundred pounds. The feather cape that the king is wearing required thousands of tiny feather to make one cape. The birds were often caught by the Kahunas (Hawaiian Priest) and after removing only a few feathers from each bird, the bird was then released. The capes were worn to display rank, not wealth.
