Anianiku

Water Series

Located on O'ahu's West side in the Ahupua'a o Hono'uli'uli, is a small jeweled santuary known as Lanikuhonua. “Where the heavens meet the earth”

Lanikuhounua safeguards a mini sand bay with a protected outer reef named Anianiku. Literally meaning “glass” or “mirror”, it is interpreted as “reflection” or “looking within”.

The Hawaiians knew this as a healing pond. It was here the Ali’i (royalty) would bring their new born to be dipped in these waters to give them “Ha” or breath.

This nurturing pond also protected the spawning and keiki fish to grow before venturing north along the Waianae coast.

The Anianiku Series: water images of contemplation, introspection, and healing.
