Priming the Gopuram Towers

This morning a group from the Kauai branch of the Association of Family and Community Education, a program of the University of Hawaii Tropical Agricultural Human Resource walked through Siva's Garden of Life, guided by Isani.

They were able to witness the priming of the Chinna Gopuram West Tower

Here the team from Maryland begins the priming of the North tower. Once it dries, they will apply the sizing and the 23-karat gold. Did you know that gold is so thin that 200,000 sheets would only be an inch thick? You can see our slideshow on the priming below.
