Kona Kai with Fat Lava in 3 collections

Gecko'z South Sea Arts

This Tiki mug has large slanted coffee-bean-shaped eyes and an open, toothless, mouth. Inspired by a Tiki at La Mariana. A friend of Gecko's said there was a similar one in the back of the old Chicago Kona Kai bar (carved by Leroy Schmaltz of Oceanic Arts and pictured on page 142 of The Book of Tiki). So he named the mug for Kona Kai. Made in Oahu, Hawaii. This is a fat lava glaze version of this design.
