She flies along the sea on her Olo (surfboard), riding the waves with focus and balance. Lucy finds the perfect attitude between tension and flexibility and rides the great wave home. It is the very best feeling in the world.
Lucy and her Kuku (grandfather) made the Olo (surfboard) together. First they chose the right Hawaiian Wiliwili tree for the board. Before cutting the tree, they faced towards the sea and said a prayer of thanks for the wood they would use. They honored the spirit of the tree by burying a fish beneath it. Last Lucy and Kuku drew a big Hawaiian Honu (sea turtle) on the Olo. The Honu is Lucy's Aumakua (Guardian Spirit). Lucy is deeply connected with the ancient wisdom of the Turtle. The Hawaiian Honu represents long life, safety, peace, and good luck. Lucy always feels protected when she surfs because she knows that her Aumakua is watching over her.
The wooden Olo is Lucy’s most treasured possession. She always carries it with her, even when she goes to sleep.
Lucy’s Tutu (grandmother) sewed her blue and green bikini and crocheted matching green shoes. She wove a Lauhala hat to protect Lucy from the sun. Last Tutu lovingly put a fragrant Plumeria flower in her hair. All these things were Tutu’s and Kuku's sacred gifts of Aloha (Love) to their beloved Mo'opuna Wahine (granddaughter).
Lucy is a one of a kind collectible display doll handcrafted by Hawaiian Dolls. She comes with her story and a certificate of authenticity.
