Cathy Shine, ‘Waikoloa Palms’, 2000, Tiffany's Art Agency

In the foreground, one can see a man-made fish pond constructed on the Kohala Coast of the Hawai’i. It was produced hundreds of years ago for the Aliʻi, (Hawaiian Royalty). These lagoons allowed small fish to enter from the sea, swim within the pool’s confines, never to find an exit. Harvesting this water garden by any person other than Ali’i was punishable by death.
