a.k.a. Trip To The Moon Shot & Bowl Set - by Eric October
This is a bowl/shot glass tribute to Le Voyage dans la Lune (1902) by Georges Méliès, with Tiki Bob as the rocket that lands in the moon's eye.
Eric premiered the first set at the Original Tiki Marketplace in Garden Grove on October 16th, 2021.
The film that inspired Eric's work remains Méliès' best known, and the moment in which the capsule lands in the Moon's eye remains one of the most iconic and frequently referenced images in the history of cinema. It is widely regarded as the earliest example of the science fiction film genre and, more generally, as one of the most influential films in cinema history.
Eric has created a few of these sets to be sold at Southern California tiki marketplaces, but is open to making more for those that reach out to him through social media.
