This 10" hula figure was produced in 1973 by HIP (Hawaiian Island Products). There was also a smaller 6" version made in black lava. Additionally, there have been later non-HIP reproductions made in different colors. Originals were made with the HIP sticker on the back. See photo. The sticker reads: "The Hula Princess: While journeying to his Summer Court, King Liholiho stopped at the Sacred Springs to bathe, when out of the waters rose a maiden clad only in the beauty of her nakedness. It was love at first sight! Thus began the Legend of the Nude Princess."
