Island Girl Mug by Big Toe in 2 collections

BigToe "Island Girl" hand-signed mug was styled after a BigToe painting called "Forbidden Island" that tells a narrative of an early visit to the Polynesian Islands. “Forbidden Island” was inspired by 2 black and white vintage photos (one of which, the topless wahine, was taken by Adolphe Sylvain of Tahiti from the 1960s) and a shot BigToe took at the Place Of Refuge on the Big Island of Hawaii. A beautiful wahine watches a wooden schooner drop anchor in an idyllic tropical lagoon with majestic volcanic mountains in the distance. The 2 menacing tikis watch over her and could portent troubled waters ahead for the visiting sailors. The mug was manufactured by Munktiki Imports. This is an open edition mug with subtle bas relief sculpting, that the artist has hand-signed. The mug measures about 8" tall by 2.75" wide, and holds about 15 fl oz.
