Our sun is the eye of the world, which illuminates all life on earth. As the greatest fire of nature, the sun's glorious rays are the source of light and life within the soul. The sun reflects strength of spirit, awareness, abundance, clarity and leadership.
Watching the sun rise, nourishes and rejuvenates the spirit. It is a process of rebirth which restores joy and peace to our inner being as the spirit within is illuminated by the sun's radiance. The warm rays comfort, heal and invigorate body and soul.
Haleakala is a 1.2 million years old massive shield volcano that forms more than 75% of the island of Maui. It is a place of prayer;
For over 1000 years, only the Na Kāhuna P'o (ancient priests) and their Haumana (students) lived at Haleakalā for meditation to receive spiritual wisdom as well as to observe the heavens for navigation purposes. They merged the sounds of their ancient prayers with the Mana (spiritual energy) of nature for spiritual manifestations. Over 300 Heiaus (temples) were built on the eastern side of Haleakalā. The ancient Hawaiians kept Haleakala's secrets for the people to love, protect and preserve.
Haleakala has been named 'The House of the Sun'. It is a sacred place and must be treated with respect.
Menehune Baby Lala (Sunshine) was created in honor of our glorious sun.
Lala's smile is like sunshine, warming body and soul. Lala is the Menehune's Keiki Punahele (beloved child). They love her and take turns watching over her at all times. Lala is only 3 months old. She just left the spiritual world and her memory and connection to her origin are very strong. The deep inner knowing that she is always taken care of fills her with trust and love. The Menehunes rejoice in Lala’s sweet innocence. Gently rocking her cradle, they softly sing a Hawaiian lullaby to her:
Surrounded by her Ohana’s (family’s) Aloha (love), Lala lies contently in her coconut cradle cuddling her Pea 'Alika (Teddy Bear) and sucking on her thumb.
Pea 'Alika, theTeddy Bear, is about 1" tall. He is handmade out of synthetic fur with black crystals for eyes and nose and a pink embroidered mouth.
All accessories were individually handcrafted.
Lala is a one of a kind collectible display doll handcrafted by Hawaiian Dolls.
Lala comes with her story and a certificate of authenticity.
