Breaking a kapu was believed to incur the wrath of the gods. Hawaiians often chased down an offender and swiftly put him to death unless he could reach a puuhonua, or place of refuge. There he could be absolved by a kahuna (priest) in a purification ceremony, then return home with his transgression forgiven. Defeated warriors and non-combatants could also find refuge here during times of battle.

Inspired from my visits to Puuhonua O Honaunau (City of Refuge) on the Big Island Kapu' Ki'i came to be..

I tried to distress this Kapu Ki'i mug as much as possible to make him look like he was standing there at Honaunau for decades..

Outer glaze in a deep Jungle Brown with a glossy Monstera Leaf Green interior that really pops against the brown.

Stands at 8 3/4" Tall and Holds 16 oz

This was a one mold mug design and I have produced many of them over the years so these last few that I make require lots of cleanup and carving.
The mug you see is the mug you'll get, only one exactly like this.

Handmade on Maui
