- ‘Alala Artwork By Patrick Ching
Inspiration: The Hawaiian Crow is called 'Alala in Hawaiian. Literally 'Alala means "to cry out loud." Unlike most crows the 'Alala is very rare and critically endangered of becoming extinct. There are only a few dozen of them left; most of which are in a captive breeding facility in Olinda, Maui. The 'Alala once inhabited all the main Hawaiian Islands and is now only found on the Big Island of Hawaii.The 'Alala is an intelligent bird and in ancient times was sometimes kept as a pet.
Inspiration: The sacred ‘Alala (Hawaiian crow) perches on a koa tree with glowing red ‘Alala (Hawaiian raspberries) in it's sight. Hawaiian crows are so critically endangered that at the time of this painting there are none of them in the wild. The only ‘Alala are kept in a captive breeding facility on the big island of Hawaii. Artist Patrick Ching believes that the crows will one day repopulate Hawaiian forests. More...
