The bulk of this series relates to Pineda's sculpture of Queen Lili'uokalani, The Spirit of Lili'oukalani, commissioned by the state of Hawaii and completed in 1982; the subsequent exhibition, Search for the Queen; and a documentary film by Pineda that intertwined Hawaiian history, the life of Queen Lili'uokalani, and her process of sculpting The Spirit of Lili'oukalani.
