This ceramic mug depicts a fierce beast with jagged teeth and bright red eyes. Hawaiian legend has it that there once was a man-eating creature, with the body of an enormous man, but with the head and claws of a dog. His name was Kaupe. Kaupe lived on the island of O’ahu, and ruled the Nu’Uanu Valley. According to the myth, Kaupe kidnapped a High Chief’s son, to use as a sacrifice at the heiau. With the aid of Kahilona, a great kahuna, the father was able to rescue his son, and ultimately kill Kaupe.
