This chapter narrates the events surrounding a project, which aims to encourage North Kohala residents to think about the sculpture in a new way—not just as a spiritual, educational, political, and economic object, but as a “conservation object.” The project conducted public art activities for kids that made adults talk about the sculpture. One art class had created a tile mural depicting the sculpture at the bottom of the sea. They installed the tiles at the Kohala Hospital for Kamehameha Day in June 2001. Another class made a timeline relating moments in Kamehameha's life to other world events. Still another class made copies of known works of art featuring the sculpture.
