Kanaloa

Say hello to Kanaloa, the ancient Polynesian God of Eternal Hope.

I found him at a local antique store this fall for about $2.  He’s made entirely of Hapa-wood, which is actually plastic.

I purchased him because I love the message that I found on his back:

And those emerald green eyes.

His brother is for sale on E-bay in the neighboring town of Chapel Hill.

Starting bid is $9.99.   I should buy it and send it to President Obama. He probably already has one though.

Hmm…do you think Kanaloa inspired Obama’s message of “Hope” during his first presidential campaign?
I wonder.

I’ll ask when I send the statue.
