#5 (The Family)
is a word that comes from the Greek words, "petros", for rock and
'glyphen", to carve. Literally, petroglyphs are rock carvings. The
ancient Hawaiians called them ki'i pohaku or stone images.
The eternal bond of the family was essential in ancient Hawaiian
society. Children and family petroglyphs are very common and can be
found in many petroglyph fields.
"This carving is made
Quartzite and has a beautiful golden color. There is a textured grain
to the stone which runs horizontal across the piece."
