Gate to Paradise

UPDATE: I stand corrected, and very impressed. Please read the comment to this post.

Just like the Renaissance, sort of.

Patrons of the arts supporting artists working on a large scale can still be found. Check out the gates fronting any of the hundreds of mansions on Maui. Each one is unique and many are true works of art. While a few (upper right) are manufactured off island, most are built right here by local artisans.
