Ola (Life), the Hula Dancer

Birthdate: 'Aukake 8, 2017 (08/08/17)

Aloha Mai I come with love.

Ola's Hula honors the miracle of life. Join her in a celebration of life’s joys and abundance!

Celebrating the glorious magnificence of life, Ola dances the ancient Hawaiian Kahiko Hula. The beautiful movements of her hands and body tell stories about the wonders of nature, the creation of the world and the traditions of the Hawaiian people

Ola's Hula attunes us to spirit and gladdens the heart.

Ola's Tutu (grandmother) is her Kumu Hula (Hula Teacher). She taught her the powerful movements of the Kahiko Hula. Tutu also hand crafted the traditional hula skirt and coconut shell top. Tutu wove her Mana (spiritual energy) and Aloha (love) into Ola's green feather and yellow sweet smelling Puakenikeni flower Haku (head lei), wrist and ankle leis. In Hawaii the Hulu (feather) represents spiritual strength, unity and love. It is believed to link to the divine. Last Tutu wrapped a precious sea shell necklace around Ola's neck and stuck a beautiful yellow and orange Plumeria flower behind her ear. All these precious things were Tutu’s gifts of Aloha (Love) to her beloved Mo’opuna Wahine (granddaughter).

Ola is about 4” tall fitting in the palm of your hand. The body is made out of stretch cotton and wired for flexibility. The eyes and mouth are intricately embroidered onto the face. Ola has tiny little hands and feet, ears, buttocks, and a belly button. All accessories were individually handcrafted. Ola is a one of a kind display doll handcrafted by Hawaiian Dolls. She comes with her story and a certificate of authenticity.

Ola's dance honors the sacredness of life.
