Tahitian Tiki Carver Mug Custom a.k.a. Tahitian Carva Kustom - in 5 collections

Designer
Gecko
Manufacturer
Gecko'z South Sea Arts

This mug is shaped like a carving mallet whose handle has Tahitian carvings and whose larger striking end has a Tiki on one side and the image of a beautiful bathing wahine waist deep in water and back turned on the other side. The regular edition in brown has no chisel handle. This custom version (and some other exclusive versions) has a handle that was cast off of Gecko's own carving chisel that he used for carving tikis for some of the local Tiki bars in Hawaii, mainland tikis, as well as the Tiki he carved for the King of exotica music, Mr. Martin Denny, whose daughter Christina made the commission. Custom versions vary in glaze and other ornament.
