This is a hand-built and one-of-a-kind mug by Tobunga (Eric October) depicting the traditional u'u' war club of the Marquesas. These clubs were originally made out of a very tough and heavy wood known as toa, which is also the word for warrior. Each club has a number of faces carved into either side of it at the top, which were thought to provide an owner with extra protection. Many examples of this kind of club were collected in the first half of the nineteenth century and around 200 originals are thought to have survived.
