This little altar is dedicated to the Hawaiian Goddess Pele. She is the Goddess of volcanoes, fire and the creator of the Hawaiian islands. Pele is also known as “She who shapes the sacred land”. This little altar is made from Himalayan Golden teak burl from Hawaii. Burned onto it is a traditional Hawaiian design symbolizing the islands, sun and volcanoes. Below that in Hawaiian it says,”I ka hanohano o Pele”, which means in the honor of Pele. Attached to the altar are two chunks of Hawaiian raw rainbow obsidian, which is associated with healing. It is also decorated with a sand dollar, beach ringed stone, Shark fossil tooth, sea shells and 40,000 year old sea shell fossils. There is enough room to place a candle or small offering on it to Pele.
