The Satisfied Seal by Doug Horne

The Satisfied Seal Tiki Mug

Original design by Doug Horne for The Search for Tiki

    We are proud to introduce The Search for Tiki’s first ever limited edition tiki mug, The Satisfied Seal. Our mug depicts a loner seal who finds companionship in the sunken treasures he finds buried beneath the sea floor.

    Designed by Doug Horne, this mug will feature a Hawaiian monk seal and a treasure chest atop a rocky platform in the Pacific Ocean. A portion of the proceeds from this mug will be donated to the preservation of the Hawaiian monk seal, an endangered species. The Hawaiian monk seal and the hoary bat are the only two mammals endemic to the Hawaiian islands. The Hawaiian name for their seal is “Ilio holo I ka uaua”, which translates to “dog that runs in rough water”.

   Edition size, pricing, and ship date have not yet been announced for this mug. Preorders will not be available until production on the mug is further along. If you do not want to miss out on this mug, you can get priority access to it by donating to The Search for Tiki via our Patreon. Your donation allows us to keep creating new and exciting content for everyone to enjoy and we greatly appreciate anyone who is able to support us and our passion.

    Are you looking forward to The Search for Tiki’s first official mug? Let us know in the comments!

  1. Very cool 👍
    Nice to see part of the sales will be donated to such a great cause 🤙
    Hope to add one to our little tiki mug ohana ❤️

  2. Love the idea! But, this rendering is of a sea lion. Seals don’t have the ability to support their weight on their front flippers, have ear holes, not flaps, and don’t have the ability to rotate their rear flippers.

  3. Looks cool. As a fisheries biologist I have to make note though that what is depicted is a Sea Lion and not a Seal. Sea Lions have the external ear flap and the long fore flippers whereas true seals do not. I understand the name is established and what the donations are for, but just sayin’. Will keep an eye on price and edition. Cheers! (oh yeah, just noticed that Kris said the same thing.)

    1. Aloha! Mahalo for your support. This design is a rendering and the finished product will likely change. The ear flaps are a good catch and we appreciate the feedback. As for the Seal’s upright position… well, we know seals don’t stand upright, but they also don’t carry treasure chests up from the bottom of the ocean! We embellished a bit 🙂 We’ll keep everyone posted on price and edition size once we are further along in production!
