Opihi, the Power of Thought

Opihi
 Birthdate: 'Aukake 20, 2017 (08/20/2017)

Follow Opihi and let your thoughts become the seeds of 
what you wish to harvest!

Hinuhinu wale i ka lihi o ke kai
Shining there at the sea's edge

Me he pai pu`u ala i ho`opuu `ia
Clustered like little hills

`O ka `opihi hälala
The giant Opihi

Opihi is named after the limpet shells which grow in abundance on the cliffs of the Pacific Ocean and are considered a delicacy in Hawaii.


Opihi can’t wait to pick the delicious shells for his Ohana (family) and himself. But picking Opihi on the cliffs is very dangerous. Opihi’s Kuku (grandfather) promised that he will teach him how to pick them when he is a little bit older.
In the meantime Opihi is content to fill his fishing net with the delicious mussels he finds at Punalu’u Black Sands Beach. Dinner will be a feast for his Ohana and him!

Opihi loves to play. While he patiently fills his net with mussels, he visualizes what it will be like when his Menehune Kaukini (cousin), Pu and his Honu (Turtle), come down to the beach and they start playing together. Opihi imagines how they will swim in the ocean, build castles in the black sand, and play races with the black beach crabs. They will have a blast!

Opihi knows that his thoughts are like seeds which grow into reality. 


Sure enough, there come Pu and Honu and the fun begins!


 Opihi’s Tutu (grandmother) polished the most beautiful Opihi shell and put it on her Mo'opuna Kane's (grandson's) head to protect him from the blazing sun at the beach. Tutu crafted and blessed his Opihi shell amulet. She also sewed his blue Malu (wraparound) with a Hawaiian reef fish. All these things were Tutu's gifts of Aloha to her beloved Mo'opuna Kane.


Opihi 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. Opihi has little hands and feet, ears, buttocks, and a belly button. All accessories were individually handcrafted.

Opihi is a one of a kind collectible display dolls handcrafted by Hawaiian Dolls. He comes with his story and a certificate of authenticity.

Opihi conveys the power of thoughts.

Pele's Fire

Pele, Hawaiian Volcano Goddess
Birthdate: 'Aukake 12, 2017 (08-12-17)

Pele offers her strength and passion to remind us that life’s fiery eruptions and emotional upheavals often clear the path for positive transformations.

Aloha e Pele! (Greetings, Pele!)
The Menehunes clap their hands, jumping up and down with excitement as soon as Pele emerges from the sacred Ohia forest.
Pele always brings the most fascinating news about the flaming spirit of Hawaii’s Volcano Goddess hurling fiery ribbons of lava down the mountain slopes, giving birth to new rock formations and land.

Pele carries a Pahu (staff) with a flame of Kilauea Volcano
surrounded by fragrant Maile leaves.
The flame embodies the light of spirit, knowledge and life.

Gifted with a passionate spirit, Menehune girl Pele was named after Hawaii’s Fire Goddess.

Pele’s Tutu (grandmother) wove her Mana (spiritual energy) and Aloha (love) into Pele's Maile Haku (head lei). Tutu also sewed Pele’s red volcano dress which reflects the lava flow down the mountain slope.
She crocheted black panties and matching shoes. All these things were Tutu's gifts of Aloha (Love) for her beloved Mo’opuna Wahine (granddaughter).


Pele’s abundant black hair cascades down her back like the lava flow on the mountain slope.


Pele 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. Pele has tiny little hands and feet, ears, buttocks, and a belly button. All accessories were individually handcrafted.
Pele is a one of a kind collectible display dolls handcrafted by Hawaiian Dolls. She comes with her story and a certificate of authenticity.

 Pele blesses you with her flame of Kilauea Volcano.

Ola's Tutu (grandmother) is her Kumu Hula (Hula Teacher). She taught her the powerful movements of the Kahiko Hula.
Tutu also hand crafted the traditional hula skirt and coconut shell top. Tutu wove her Mana (spiritual energy) and Aloha (love) into Ola's green feather and yellow sweet smelling Puakenikeni flower Haku (head lei), wrist and ankle leis. In Hawaii the Hulu (feather) represents spiritual strength, unity and love. It is believed to link to the divine.
Last Tutu wrapped a precious sea shell necklace around Ola's neck and stuck a beautiful yellow and orange Plumeria flower behind her ear. All these precious things were Tutu’s gifts of Aloha (Love) to her beloved Mo’opuna Wahine (granddaughter).
