King Kamehameha Statue in Hawi

Originally crafted in Florence in 1880 and destined for display at Honolulu’s Judiciary Building, the statue was lost at sea when the ship transporting it sank near the Falkland island. Years after a replica was crafted and delivered to Honolulu the original was found in a Falkland island junkyard and shipped to a site in Hawi near King Kamehameha’s birthplace. Each year on King Kamehemeha Day (June 11) it is the tradition that the statue is covered in beautiful leis.
