The magical Mana of the beautiful 'Olena plant inspired the creation of Menehune girl Pua 'Olena, the Hula Dancer.
Here is 'Olena's story:
The Menehunes are enchanted watching Pua 'Olena's dances. Her graceful movements tell stories about the wonders of nature, the creation of the world and much more.
Watch her closely! Pua 'Olena invites you to enter her sacred space so that your beauty can unfold like the precious blossoms of the 'Olena plant.
The red crystals in her head lei symbolize the precious Lehua blossoms of the Hawaiian Ohia tree which are sacred to Pele, the Big Island’s Volcano Goddess.
Pua 'Olena is about 3.5” 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. She has tiny little hands and feet, ears, buttocks, and a belly button.
All accessories were individually handcrafted.
Pua 'Olena and her brother, Koko, often dance the Hula together. Gracefully, they move in harmony to sacred ancient chants. In deep respect they Aloha Honua (honor the earth).
She comes with her story and a certificate of authenticity.
