Kapu Ki'i Two Tone Tiki Mug
Inspired from my visits to Puuhonua O Honaunau (City of Refuge) on the Big Island, Kapu' Ki'i came to be..
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.
This custom Kapu' Ki'i has been done up with one Ki'i glazed in a Weathered Grey and the other in a Jungle Brown with an Emerald Green interior.
Stands at 8 3/4" Tall and Holds 16
