This is an extraordinary condensation of that which we call love, that which we call happiness, that which every human being wants more than anything else, and that which we call Yoga, union with our divine nature.
Somehow we love studies. Well, studies reveal across the board that what people want most in life before they die is to be fulfilled: to feel as if one has made a contribution, a difference, left the world a better place. We want to feel that our precious time on Earth has been worthwhile, and that we have meant a lot to some. We want to feel our talents have been honored and well spent, that perhaps our work (our love) in the world has changed a life or two or inspired many.
We want to be like this…. Please watch and spread broadly and like. These kids will get a computer lab if they get 50,000 views by April 10… send this around the world. This is life! And oh how great it is.
About The Rama Exhibition
Calley O’Neill is a highly respected artist, muralist, visionary designer and social ecologist from the Big Island of Hawai‘i. Journalists have described her art, which spans four decades, as ethno-visionary, dynamic, symbolic and breathtaking. Calley finds her expression through classical glaze painting in mixed media works, public murals, stained glass and mosaic. Her landmark Healing Gardens of Makahikilua master plan for North Hawai’i Community Hospital in Kamuela received national recognition among top landscape architects in the field of therapeutic garden design. A great team player, Calley’s input raises the bar and sparks innovation toward healing the Earth and its inhabitants. Journalists have described her as ‘a way-finder’, ‘a life giving force’ and ‘a force of nature.’
Calley is known for exceptional quality draftsmanship, a crystalline mastery of glaze painting, stimulating diversity, relentless experimentation, and her love of the Earth and humanity. Her magnum opus is Rama, Ambassador for the Endangered Ones, and she continually works on the exhibition paintings in her Waimea studio and her plein air pop-up studio and tree gallery at the Four Seasons Hualalai at Historic Ka’upulehu, where she is the Artist in Residence. Her paintings are both visual prayers and wake-up calls.
Calley earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree, summa cum laude from Pratt Institute, New York (1974) and a Master’s Degree in Social Ecology from Goddard College in Plainfield, Vermont (1977).
