Just added a nice series of photographs of Hawaian rock art to the Wordwide Rock Art Selection. The pics were taken by my daughter and son-in-law during their vacation trip to Hawai last September. The carvings in the lava are of relatively recent times (from of 1200AD). That’s probably why they have a handed down explanation for the cup and ring(s) as can be read on the second photo. There’s also a link to an explaintory website with, a.o. the following text: “Reverend William Ellis, a missionary to the Hawaiian and Society Islands, recorded the earliest written observation of the petroglyphs at Pu`uloa in 1823”. By that time Mr Langlands acknowledged the antiquity of the Old Bewick motifs. Small world! Enjoy….
Hawaian RA: Aloa!
