Drum of the Forefathers Tiki Mug

Hi All,
a long awaited update (awaited by me anyway)…

I’m not a prolific collector of Tiki mugs but when I saw this one I had to have it!

Drum of the forefathers Tiki MugThis mug was designed by Tank Standing Buffalo , mainly known for his Kustom Kulture and lowbrow artwork.

The base features figures representing four ‘forefathers’ of Tiki, Don the Beachcomber, Trader Vic, Thor Heyerdahl and Edgar Leeteg.

The drum design and figures are inspired by Leeteg’s ‘Tahitian Drummer‘  painting, with the figures featuring the logos and imagery associated with their respective forefathers.

This mug holds over a pint of liquid which is excessive even by my rum drinking standards…drink responsibly kids!
