This is a mug shaped like a large moai that used to stand at the Aku Aku in Las Vegas at the Stardust Hotel & Casino. The original moai was carved by Eli Hedley, grandfather of Bamboo Ben.

The mug is weathered and shows cracks and is marked for the "Aku Aku" on the back with a red shield and crossed spears. It is a gloss gray.

This was the first design collaboration between Tiki Classics and Biggs Tiki. A first edition in a pale greenish gray (matte patina copper glaze) was sold through a lottery method for those that signed up in advance. The lottery went live on January 26th, 2021 and concluded on the 30th with winners notified on the 31st.

This second edition in more of a gloss gray was sold first-come and first-served through a "Pick Your Poison" event on March 6th, 2021, through Biggs Tiki's website.
