This painting was inspired by Pele The Hawaiian Goddess, ancient stories tell of her The Goddess of fire, lightning, dance, wind, volcanoes and violence. Her poetic name is Ka Wahine `Ai Honua or the woman who devours the land. She is both a creator and destroyer. Some people say they seen her dancing in the lava spouting from the cones. I thought a painting as such would be a great tribute to her.
