HIP Reproduction Nude Hula Princess in Frosted Amber - Large

This 10" hula figure was originally produced in black lava in 1973 by HIP (Hawaiian Island Products). There was also a smaller 6" version made in black lava. This version, however, is a non-HIP reproduction made in a lightly yellowed translucent resin. Originals were made with the HIP sticker on the back. This has no sticker, but the original one read: "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."
