Pele, The Volcano Goddess

This beautiful A4 size (8.268" x 11.693") coloring book is created from 24 blockprint illustrations by cherished artist Dietrich Varez, inspired by Pele, The Volcano Goddess.

As you, the coloring book artist add your pencil or pen strokes, our wish is that you are inspired as well with the leading tales and characters of the Pele mythology.


Pelehonuamea (Pele), the creator of the Hawaiian Islands is known by many names. Names which describe her elemental forms; Pele is the goddess of volcanoes and the deity of volcanic forces.

Pele resides in Halema‘uma‘u Crater, located within the much larger summit caldera of Kilauea on the island of Hawai‘i.

The intent of this coloring book is to introduce and inspire you with the leading tales and variety of characters of the Pele mythology, offered here by way of blockprint images.

Because the artwork takes the primary position of familiarizing you with each story, a deeper and greater retention of these Hawaiian myths and legends is achieved.

To read these captivating stories in further detail I highly recommend, Selections from Hawaiian Legends of Volcanoes by William D. Westervelt.
