Koko Head Crater is one of the most popular landscapes on Oahu’s south shore.
In the Aloha (compassion) spirit, the Lōkahi (unity) spirit, and the Pono (righteousness) spirit, Koko honors the gods, tells stories about Aumakuas (ancestral guardians),the sacredness of life and respect for all things with his dance. The Menehune Ohana (family) loves to watch.
Koko’s Tutu (grandmother) wove her Mana (spiritual energy) and Aloha (love) into her Mo’opuna Kane’s (grandson’s) turquoise Hulu (feather) head, wrist and ankle leis. Tutu made Koko’s traditional grass skirt and added many white conch shells. In Hawaii the Hulu and conch shell invoke blessings of the divine.
Koko is about 4” 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. Koko has tiny little hands and feet, ears, buttocks, and a belly button. All accessories were individually handcrafted.
Koko is a one of a kind display doll handcrafted by Hawaiian Dolls. He comes with his story and a certificate of authenticity.
