The Makua and Kila statue Mak is based on a childrens story by Fred Van Dyke. The children?s story honors Hawaiian values of love and respect for ohana (family) and the ocean. The statue made me think of my wife's favorite Disney movie; Lilo & Stitch for some reason.

We came upon these statues while wandering Kuhio Beach. The statues are very popular with locals and are covered with leis daily by passers by.
