a.k.a. Hale Pele Little Lava Person Mug Third Open Edition Color Way
This mug is shaped like one of the little lava people, the A'a'po'e, who help to keep Pele from blowing her stack by cooling her with their everflowing lava. This mug resembles the fountain statue on the left as you enter Hale Pele, with its bowl of cooling lava held in both hands. The Tiki has slanted coffee bean-shaped eyes, a slotted mouth with small tongue protruding, and spiral designs on chest and legs. This Open Edition comes in a glossy brown glaze with an undercoating of yellow green and is from the Munktiki Imports line (from Fuhua Porcelain Factory of Dehua, China). This is the third color-way of the Open Edition, released 05/04/2015. The first one was in coconut brown and the second was a sea green color. There is also a Limited Edition (in several color ways) and a Super Limited Edition (that has a tri-color gradation from top to bottom of yellow, then orange, then red). The mug's signature drink, the A'a'po'e, is described as: "an amazingly quenching and tasty blend of pot-still Jamaican rum, piney gin, spices, and tropical fruits."
