HONOLULU (AP) - The director of Iolani Palace says damage to an etched glass front door is an irreparable loss of a treasure.

Kippen de Alba Chu tells the Honolulu Star-Advertiser (https://bit.ly/1npVcge) that the damage has left staff members devastated.

De Alba Chu says a woman accompanied by a man kicked the door at 8 a.m. Saturday.

A 21-year-old woman and a 30-year-old man were arrested by police on suspicion of criminal property damage. They were not immediately charged and were released.

The palace was built by King David Kalakaua as the official home of the Hawaiian monarchy. The structure is a National Historic Landmark.

The image on the damaged glass door depicts a Hawaiian woman and was etched in in San Francisco for the opening of the palace in 1882.
