Limited Edition #197 of 300 Silver Chrome Yipwon Tiki Mug by Tiki Farm

Regular price $150.00
This silvertone mug is inspired by Papua New Guinea Yipwon spirit figures. The Yipwon is an abstract representation of the human figure that is made by the Yimam cultures of Papua New Guinea. The figure consists of several parts with the form of a bird. This mug features a tucked-in and modified, low-hanging "pompadour" inspired direction. The next part is a human male face, a long narrow nose, and a mouth puckered as if whistling. A protruding ridge runs from the top of the head and continues down to the chin, apparently indicating a beard. Oral stories from the Yimam culture state that this figure represents the hunting spirit in human form.
