A mug shaped like the head of the legendary Kaupe. It is said that Kaupe in physical form appears like an enormous man, except he has a canine head and sharp claws. During his reign, Kaupe ate a lot of people. At one point, he went to the island of Hawaii and kidnapped the son of a High Chief and took him back to Oahu so he could be sacrificed. The father of this boy went to a Kahuna after arriving on Oahu. The Kahuna taught him incantations and a prayer which he could use if Kaupe was encountered. Then the father journeyed to the heiau at Lihue where his son was. He saved his son and they left. Later, Kaupe picked up on their trail. The father again said the prayer, seeing that Kaupe was on their trail. Because of that, he and his son ran a lot faster. However, Kaupe was quickly catching up, so the father said the prayer again. At that moment, he and his son found a big rock to hide behind. This confused Kaupe, for he thought the father and son fled to Hawaii. The father and son then studied how to destroy Kaupe and went back to Hawaii to go to war. They were victorious and killed Kaupe. However the spirit of Kaupe remains on Oahu to this day.
