Tiki Diablo Tupaupau Book Release Bowl


2016-09-13-04-19-02

Danny “Tiki Diablo” has taken this extremely rare (I know of only 2 in existence and only one with the lid) original Mai-Kai bowl used in a drink identification contest in 1961, and put his spin on it. His creation, “Tupaupau,” meaning “Devil Woman” in the island tongue, pays tribute to the Mai-Kai and a little story in the book.

Danny’s limited edition version takes the design deeper and adds his style, and he adds copper earrings! Has 2 straw holes and a reservoir for dry ice or 151 flame.

The bowl will be in green, but a different shade from the original and a first sample will be at the release event. This bowl is limited to 125.
