Lei po'0 are nature's halos, temporal crowns woven to adorn the head with some of life's loveliest flowers. They are masterworks of a culture that lived close to the earth, a culture that celebrated the gifts that grow throughout the Hawaiian islands.Hawaiians revered flowers close to godliness. Hawaiians saw flowers as spiritual, beautiful. The gods and the ali'i were seen to have light around their heads, and lei po'o honored that.

Today flowers remain a central part of life in Hawai'i, and lei po'os continue to connect people with the divine. They combine different plants from different areas like the shore and the volcano.

At their deepest, lei po'o are a reflection of the Hawaiian Islands, a tapestry of color and beauty and unique life forms woven together. Each lei is very distinctive and unique. We all are - why should the lei be any different.

Just about anything can be woven into lei po'o.
A harmonious blend of striking colors and perfect craftmanship is the ultimate goal.

This lei po'o and the ones on the following replies were woven by Bill Chan.

This lei po'o brings together delicate paper-thin ilima blossoms with 'ohia ali'i", shrimp flower and roses.
