2021 Hawaiian Kingdom Coat of Arms Ornament


Product Overview

This ornament is inspired by the stylized coat of arms that hangs from the puloulou, or royal kapu staff, on display in the Throne Room of Iolani Palace. Both were coronation gifts to King Kalakaua on February 12, 1883. The ornament features puloulou and the national motto engraved on a golden ribbon. At its center is ke kukuioiwikauikaua, the torch that burns at mid-day, a symbol of King Kalakaua's reign. An inscription on the back of the original object documents the origin and presentation of the puloulou.

Made of solid brass, electro-plated with a gold finish.
