Hawaii's Nativity Scene

One of a Kind Ocean Theme Hawaiian Nativity Scene

He kapu hanai 'oia ka moe
No ke kama iki e hiamoe ai
Nānā mai la na hōkū ma i luna mai
Iā Iesu ka Haku o moe laʻi ana

Away in a manger, no crib for his head
The little Lord Jesus laid down His sweet head
The stars in the sky looked down where He lay
The little Lord Jesus asleep on the hay

Standing in a precious ocean theme coconut creche, 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. 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 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 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 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 Aloha spirit of the Islands to your home.
