One of a Kind Hawaiian Nativity Scene

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

Standing in a precious ocean theme coconut crèche, Malia (Virgin Mary) lovingly watches over her baby Iesu (Jesus), who is contently nestled in his nut cradle. Iokepa (Joseph) blows his Pu (conch shell) in the 4 sacred directions to announce the birth of Iesu, the greatest of all blessings. Iesu, Malia, Iokepa and the coconut crèche 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 Aloha spirit of Hawaii, the dolls, animals, coconut crèche 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 bodies 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 faces. Malia, Iokepa and Iesu have tiny little hands and feet, ears, buttocks, and belly buttons.

Pueo's and Honu's bodies have been crocheted with embroidery thread. Pua'a was sewn out of faux fur.

All dolls and animals are pinned and or glued to the coconut crèche.
The coconut for the crèche 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 Aloha spirit of the Islands to your home!
