ART IS SOCIETY

After the bars have closed on Mau’i and the phone is quiet, I enjoy taking a bit of time and walking through the public areas of the various hotels in Wailea. The paintings, the sculptures, the landscaping, everything in these beautiful destination resorts is absolutely gorgeous. The general public is welcome to partake of this beauty, but few residents avail themselves of this inexpensive (you just have to pay for parking) cultural experience.

This morning, at the end of my shift, I had some business to conduct at the front desk of the Grand Wailea.

From the main entrance (above) to the front desk, this is what I encountered:

Wahines to my right,

Kanes to my left,

This beautiful lady greets you if you enter via the Ballroom side,

Even the hotel, itself, resembles an ancient petroglyph of a warrior,

But as great as man’s endeavors, nature wins handsdown.
