The Manakia Tiki Mug was manufactured by Eekum Bookum & sculpted by Patrick Vassar, based on a design by Jay Brooks with Aloha Texas Tiki Co and modeled off of a tiki here at the Enchanted Tiki Lounge inside of The Stowaway.
There are two editions of the Manakia tiki mug. There is the sought after 1st edition limited to 100, with a brown body, ceder reddish-brown mouth and holes in the ears for rope. This mug was commissioned by the Enchanted Tiki Lounge for the Tikiphiles Takeover Luau and also sold online; quickly selling out in 2 days! The second edition has a charcoal body, vibrant red mouth, no hole in the ears (just an indention), and sometimes glaze drips down the face. It too is numbered 1 through 100 and was sold directly by Eekum Bookum. This "2nd Edition" was never meant to be! After opening the kiln on the original Manakia, John Mulder was not happy with the way the glaze reacted to being fired with the bright red lips and brunt body (because he knew it wasn't what I ordered, but... he and I still liked it). He then sold this "burnt" Manakia with the permission of the Enchanted Tiki Lounge.
Originally sold for $55 this mug now fetches 250 calms regularly on Ebay!!!
