    “There is, one knows not what sweet mystery about this sea, whose gently awful stirrings seem to speak of some hidden soul beneath…” – Herman Melville, Moby-Dick, or, The Whale

    The Sea has enchanted generations for thousands of years, yet it is estimated that approximately 95% of the oceans remain unexplored. What mysteries still await us?

    The ocean influenced nearly every aspect of life in ancient Polynesia. Today many tiki mug makers find inspiration from those same, ancient waters. This curation of tiki mugs depicts mermaids, aquatic life, shipwrecks, and/or sunken treasures.
