Petroglyphs Sunset Rolled Canvas Photos

Petroglyphs Sunset Rolled Canvas Photos The Waikoloa petroglyph preserve is one of the two petroglyph fields north of Kailua-Kona. The other field is the Pukao Petroglyph field. The petroglyphs around the trail are scattered like graffiti everywhere you look. Some are graphic (humans, birds, canoes) and others cryptic. Western influences appear in the form of horses and English initials. Petroglyphs, or kii pohaku, are lava rock carvings etched into stone centuries ago by Native Hawaiians. Although the true meanings of the petroglyphs are unknown, it is generally thought these carvings are records of births and other significant events in the lives of the people who lived here long ago. See the carvings of human forms, canoes, turtles and others in the many captivating petroglyphs fields throughout Hawaii Island. One of the best preserved petroglyph sites on the Big Island is the Waikoloa Petroglyph Field. To get to this field from Kailua-Kona, take Highway 19 north for 25 minutes to the first stop light after the airport, and turn left towards the Waikoloa beach resorts. Some of the petroglyph images are clustered near historic land boundaries or along foot “highways” through lava fields, but the full reasons for their location and creation remain a mystery. Sadly, development has destroyed many of these treasures–ancient images that escaped destruction by earthquake or lava flow were destroyed during the construction of resorts and golf courses. You can take a guided tour or take the .7-mile hike that ends on a boardwalk from which the petroglyphs are easily visible.
