The unveiling and blessing of Herb Kawainui Kane’s last painting was included as part of the annual benefit for Historic Hawaii Foundation.

Titled “Kamehameha Landing,” the powerful image captures a moment from history, depicting Kamehameha I and his warriors as they landed in Waikiki in the 1795 campaign to conquer Oahu and unite the Hawaiian Islands under his rule.

Kyo-ya Hotels and Resorts commissioned the painting to grace the entrance to the Monarch Room at the Royal Hawaiian, A Luxury Collection Resort. The painting was Kane’s last work and was 90 percent complete at the time of his passing in March 2011.

Kane was honored as the ‘Kamaaina of the Year’ at the annual Historic Hawaii Foundation benefit Oct. 22 at the Royal Hawaiian. The painting was unveiled at a private dedication ceremony Oct. 21.
