Inspired by the legends of Hi'iaka, sister of Pele.
Hi'iaka is a enigmatic profound ancestor. Renowned for her beauty she is legend to have magical powers that allowed her to "shape shift", chant, heal and battle mythical creatures. Hi'iaka embarked on many adventures throughout the Islands to locate Lohiau, Pele's lover. On these adventures she was often confronted by creatures such as Mo'o, E'epa and Kupua. Hi'iaka wore a magic Pa'u skirt that was said to "contain lightening in the folds". The skirt was able to transform into a "fern whip" that she would use to blast the creatures. This image depicts the essence of Hi'iaka in one of her confrontations. Due to the fact that there is no "agreeable" description of the magical creatures, we implemented CGI techniques to create the creatures based on multipal descriptions and elements.
