One of a Kind Hawaiian Nativity Scene

Ho'ano Ohana - The Holy Family
Malia, Iesu, Iokepa, Pueo, Honu and Pua'a

Mele Kalikimaka (Merry Christmas) from the Big Island of Hawaii!

Standing in a precious coconut creche Malia (Virgin Mary) lovingly watches over her baby Iesu (Jesus), who is contently nestled in his nut cradle. Iokepa (Joseph) shines his sacred Kukui nut torch in honor of the greatest of all blessings. Iesu, Malia, Iokepa and the coconut creche are wearing a halo of the Hawaiian Hulu (feather) lei, which is believed to link to the divine.
Pua'a, the pig, Honu, the turtle and Pueo, the owl have gathered to adore the sweet baby.

In the Christmas spirit of Hawaii, the dolls, animals, coconut cradle and accessories were intricately handcrafted with the greatest love and respect for this sacred event.

Malia and Iokepa are about 3” tall fitting in the palm of your hand. The bodie are made out of stretch cotton and wired for flexibility. Iesu is about 3/4" tall. The eyes and mouth are intricately embroidered onto their face. Malia, Iokepa and Iesu have tiny little hands and feet, ears, buttocks, and belly buttons.
Pueo's body has been crocheted with embroidery thread. Pua'a and Honu were sewn out of faux fur.
The coconut for the creche was selected from palm trees at Punalu’u Black Sands Beach. It is hand carved, sanded, polished, and fit to a custom coconut husk base.
All accessories were individually handcrafted.

Malia, Iesu, Iokepa, Pueo, Honu and Pua'a are one of a kind collectible display dolls handcrafted by Hawaiian Dolls. They come with a certificate of authenticity.

Treat yourself to this Holy Ohana (family) and bring the Christmas spirit of the Islands to your home!
