Creating A Point of Interest

Richard feels Warren has hit on an important point in creating a garden. Find a unique feature that is on the property, something already there and center everything else around it. It creates a focal point, a point of interest, thereby creating a very special place. Warren feels his design technique is to create mystery and interest. One of the ways to do that is to use sculpture. He shows Richard 3 Hawaiian Tikis that were carved in Kihei by a master carver. They were made from earpod and monkeypod. One sculpture is Lono, the most powerful god, the second is Kanaloa, the god of the ocean and the 3rd is Ku, the god of vengeance. These sculptures create interest plus provide a sense of Hawaii.
