Maile, Maiden Madonna

Maile was a pregnant 15-year-old west side Kaua’i girl when she posed for this painting. It is traditional here for the grandparents to raise the children while the young parents are finding their way in life.  Maile’s face radiates the innocence and newly budding wisdom of a maiden madonna.
