Nukumanu is inspired by the art of Papua New Guinea, Nukuman is a small island off Papua New Guinea.This mug was designed by our friend Philippe Tilikete. You can check out more of Philippe's art on his own blog. Click here to go to his blog.Here is some words from Philippe on his design of the Nukumanu Tiki Mug."The Nukumanu Mug is a design based on Papua New Guinea art ( the Nukuma People ), i wanted to create a PNG mug with simpler/angular/geometric lines and shapes with an overall stockiness to it. I tried to stay true to the attitude, fierceness and fun of the Papua New Guinea art. The Nukumanu islands are formerly the Tasman Islands off the coast of Papua New Guinea, it thought this was a suiting name for this particular design."
