The Art of Tiki Mug Open Edition

a.k.a. The Art of Tiki Mug Third Edition in 12 collections

This mug is based on a Milan Guanko tiki pictured in Sven Kirsten's The Art of Tiki and formerly used on menus by The Islands Restaurant in Phoenix, AZ (which opened in 1958 and was later known as "Tommy Wong's Islands" in the 1970s). The tiki has simple features with half-circle eyes, a long nose, rectangular mouth, and stylized rootball hair on top. Concept for mug by Sven. Sculpt by THOR. The first edition in dark brown was sold exclusively through La Luz de Jesus Gallery's "Art of Tiki" Show and book signing starting October 6, 2017. Presented by Otto Von Stroheim & Sven Kirsten. The second edition was in an orange glaze. This third and open edition in tan has a dark brown wash to pick out details.
