New Māori Meow Edition of Hiwa Sheba Tiki Mug Is Signed By Jeff Granito
A super limited edition of 28 has been announced by Tikiland Trading Co. for Jeff Granito’s Hiwa Sheba tiki mug. Each mug is signed by Jeff Granito and includes US shipping. The new mug retails for $155.00.
Tikiland Trading Co. notes on their website that “due to the nature of this natural shell the colors vary. Some have more hints of green, some have more pinks, some will be more blue, some have more purple tones, but we’ve worked to match each set of eyes so that they complement one another.” The mug stands 9¾” tall and weighs just under two pounds. It can hold approximately 24 fl. oz. of your favorite cocktail.
This mug depicts a double-sided Sheba cat. On one side, the cat is depicted with diamond eyes and its tongue sticking out, with a tiki mask pendant suspended from its collar. On the reverse side the cat’s eyes are closed in a happy expression with a four leaf clover pendant hanging from its neck. The two sides represent good and bad luck, with the number 13 hidden on the base of the bad luck side.
