    From the Tiki Maniacs website:

    "This tiki mug mash-up was inspired by one of our favorite mid-century sci-fi movies. The mug was sculpted by Patrick Vassar of The Green Tiki and produced in the USA by Kathy Tope of Tickled Tiki. The mug features a pearlized metallic glaze that changes color depending on the light and the hula girl is meticulously hand painted.

    This is a limited edition of 150 mugs and each will be hand numbered."

    10 Artist Proofs in varying colors were also produced. There was also a second edition of this mug produced in "Koa Wood" brown.
