Waiʻeli, water that must be dug for; named for one of Lāʻie’s farming terraces recorded in Sites of Oahu (Elspeth P. Sterling and Catherine C. Summers.) In ʻŌlelo Hawaiʻi, water can be equated to wealth and knowledge. The artwork depicts a kanaka digging with his ʻōʻō for a fresh water spring. The artwork also resembles celestial bodies, the sun and the moon, representing the Hawaiian belief that the heavens act as a source of water. This depicts the duality of heaven and earth, as well as the knowledge that flows between it.
