This mug is a tikified re-imagining of the famous poster from the film, Forbidden Planet (1956) where Robby the Robot is carrying Anne Francis. In this case, the more tikified robot is carrying a hula girl.
From the Tiki Maniacs website:
"This tiki mug mash-up was inspired by one of our favorite mid-century sci-fi movies. The mug was sculpted by Patrick Vassar of The Green Tiki and produced in the USA by Kathy Tope of Tickled Tiki. The mug features a pearlized metallic glaze that changes color depending on the light and the hula girl is meticulously hand painted.
This is a limited edition of 150 mugs and each will be hand numbered."
10 Artist Proofs in varying colors were also produced. There was also a second edition of this mug produced in "Koa Wood" brown.
