Laka’s Story

In ancient Hawaiian mythology, Laka is known as the goddess of Hula – the traditional style of dancing and storytelling of the Native Hawaiians. Hula provided a way for the Native Hawaiians to pass on stories to future generations. Laka is also known for being the Goddess of the Forest, who watches over all vegetation. It is said that Laka means “gentle,” “docile” and “to attract.”

This piece of willow tree root was found close to Iacub Lake, alongside the small Iacub channel, in the Danube Delta. It was a quiet summer evening, during a rainy period with a mild wind, which kept most of the mosquitoes afar. Evening birds and thousands of frogs were singing along.

 

The Crafting Process

This piece of wood was not cut from a living tree. It was found dry, on the ground. 

It needed cleaning, washing, brushing and sanding. It was also treated against harmful insects, pests and mold.
