VanTiki's Description: "This curious cocktail container is modeled after the most unique of all the pounders of Polynesia: the ring pounder, or pohaku puka ku’i poi, found only on the island of Kauai. This traditional tool is used to mash taro root into poi - and its puka (Hawaiian for hole) allows two hands to easily lift the stone implement. Scaled to match the stone artifacts in the Bishop Museum collection. Unlike the standard edition - this tiki mug has been meticulously hand-detailed after casting. Note the cracks and the crisp face carvings. Do not be dazzled by the genuine paua shell inlay in the eyes! Each of the 5 Chieftain's Mugs is entirely unique. Natural paua shell eyes have been inlaid with high strength jeweler's epoxy - hand wash only!"
