This is a mug shaped like a Tiki head with a rootball top, open mouth lined with teeth, small pushed-up nose, almond-shaped eyes, and tattoos on forehead and neck. It was manufactured by John and Janet Mulder of Eekum Bookum, sculpted by Patrick Vassar, and is based on one of the original Caliente Tropics Tikis — a Tiki which still stands on the grounds of the hotel today — that was carved in the 1960’s by Ed Crissman. This mug was produced in a green and also a brown glaze. The green was released purely for Modernism Week while the brown is a year-round issue.
