Kū is one of the four principal gods (Kū, Lono, Kāne and Kanaloa) in the Hawaiian culture and religion. Although known mostly for his role as the god of war, Kū was also the god of politics, healing, progeneration, prosperity, fishing and the act of rising up among other multitude of things. This particular image is based on an ʻohia wood sculpture of one of the most recognizable forms of Kū, Kūkaʻilimoku (Kū, The Snatcher of Land), created in the time of Kamehameha I (c.1780-1820).
Whether you are protecting the Mauna, fishing, hiking or tending to the land, this face guard will protect your skin from overexposure to sun and wind. Feel the mana of Kū as you take on this image as a protector and progenitor of future generations of kānaka.
