Goddess Pele | Museum Replica Tikis
Madam Pele the Queen of Fire, she was the daughter of the Earth Goddess Haumea and dwells in the Kilauea volcano.
Makana Hut's collection of Pele tikis are made out of solid Acacia Koa wood, stained monkey pod. Called PELE, collected in Hawaii prior to 1879. The original lays in Musee de I'Homme, Paris.
This wild and fiery goddess is widely venerated in Hawaii and other parts of Polynesia. When eruptions threaten towns it is thought that Pele is angry. Her volcanoes are both destroyers and creators of the earth, since her flowing lava makes new land. Pele's husband, the Pig God Kamapua'a, is the inventor of agriculture. Notice the spouting "lava crest" of her comb headdress.
