Tupapa'u Marquesan Trophy Skull in 12 collections

Tiki Farm

A mug shaped like a skull with tusks on sides and piercing eyes. Tupapa’u is inspired by the trophy skulls of both ancestors and enemies of ancient warriors of the Marquesas Islands, predominantly from the island of Nuku Hiva. The warriors would often lash the skulls onto their rope belts and adorn them with elements such as tusks and tapa cloth. Matte wipe brown glaze on exterior to pick out details of sculpt.
