Pueo full of children

This is the sculpture known as Pueo. It is a public art piece. I believe it was made out of heavy steel or iron. It is located just in front of the Kaimuki High School auditorium. The High School was having a musical, West Side Story, and at intermission the restless little-ones ran everywhere... including around and through the Pueo. I am pretty sure that Pueo was not meant as a piece of playground equipment but it was very well built so I guess a few curious little kids poking through it shouldn't damge it that much. At least that's probably what the parents were thinking.

btw- Pueo is the native Hawaiian owl:

You already have a sculpture named for you. At such a young age. Wow.

Ahh don't I wish. My mother used to teach here, and this sculpture has been around as long as I can remember. Who knows, I may have climbed through the eye of Pueo a time or two myself.
