Hawaii’s beloved Honu sea turtles swim among tropical corals, hand painted in amazingly vivid detail. This Hawaiian ornament will delight anyone who loves snorkeling in Hawaii’s tropical waters and dazzling coral formations.
It will bring back especially fond memories of encounters with the beloved Hawaiian honu green sea turtle – one of the world’s most ancient species. The honu sea turtle is revered in Hawaiian myth but also a great favorite of visitors to the islands. Hawaii’s green sea turtle species is believed to be over 100 million years old. Sea Turtles also feature prominently in Hawaiian and Polynesian mythology, as well as the mythology of many other cultures.
In this Hawaiian ornament by Maui by Design you will see honu sea turtles swimming above a carpet of coral in varying colors and sizes. It will bring back fond memories of snorkeling excursions, a favorite activity high on many visitors’ lists where many snorkeling locations demonstrate vividly why the Hawaiian coral reef is sometimes referred to as the “rainforest” of the sea. But even if you did not take a boat ride to a favorite snorkeling spot, corals and Honu sea turtles can often be observed even close to the beach.
Our collectible glass Hawaiian Christmas ornaments are painstakingly hand painted from the inside of the glass ball. The ornament is 3.2 inches in diameter and comes with a protective and decorative gift box that makes it an ideal Hawaiian gift and keepsake for anyone who loves Hawaii.
If you can’t be in Hawaii for Christmas, at least you can have a Hawaiian Christmas with a hand painted Hawaiian ornament from Maui by Design, the Hawaii store online for when you are not in the islands.
