Wait, you Buzzed out with answering the question! "What is it?" not "Where is it from?" Is the original strictly ornamental or does it have a function?

Who cares? It's all about the rum and mugs here anyway...



Boring stuff ahead warning!!!!!!

I found this on the first site that came up on google for rei miro


Wooden gorget (Rei Miro)


From Easter Island (Rapa Nui), Polynesia
Probably first half 19th century AD

This type of crescent-shaped breast ornament, or gorget, was called a rei miro by the inhabitants of Easter Island who made them. They were mostly made of wood. [there are] two perforations near the centre of the upper edge to take a neck cord. Unusually it has a line of incised rongorongo glyphs, a form of script thought to be an aide-memoire for the user rather than a form of communication. Typically, the ends of the ornament are carved as bearded male heads, reminiscent of western images of 'the man in the moon'.

Such pendants were worn by men as emblems of high rank. The ariki mau, or paramount chief wore a distinctive costume which consisted of a barkcloth cloak stained yellow with turmeric, a feather headdress, and wooden ornaments including rei miro. Smaller examples were worn by women.

John Linton Palmer, the surgeon of HMS Topaze (the ship responsible for collecting the statue of Hoa Hakananai'a in The British Museum) wrote in 1868 that men wore rei miro at dances.

S.R. Fischer, Rongorongo: the Easter Island (Oxford, Clarendon Press, 1997)

A. Metraux, Ethnology of Easter Island (Honolulu, Bernice P. Bishop Museum, Bulletin 160, reprinted 1971)



After conducting exhaustive research, I conclude that it just hangs around the neck.
Buzzy Out!

Just to clarify, I did not design the mug which Babalu posted here on page 46.

I didn't mind when the new TC user signed up as Jab Tiki, but I am The Jab!
(and have been since 1981)
Can I get a witness?

JonesEy - it's so good to have you back from that iceberg you were traversing around on. Hey, I just got my copy of the book today Thanks again for your part in giving an clay dude a hand up brother....your "the" Man in Babalu's book!

There has been so much "damn fine" new work coming out of my studio lately; by so many different artists! I'm sure much of this work just missed deadline dates in order to have made it for consideration into this book....Ladies and Gentlemen,,,here's to the next book! There's always time for another mug book...let's start slinging some clay

LLT - The Tonga Show! You should make a some type of bowl...really! I can see some of you paintings in my mind done on the inside of a bowl...it's a marvelous thing to see.

Hey Wheeler, it's all - Always for sale. I'm taking this platter to the Tonga Hut Show on April 11th where it will have a cut rate, bargain, priced to move tag on it. Or, if it don't sell, yeah...that's a great wall for it.

Henrik - .....that hook there is suppose to hold a 100 lbs. I went ahead and sunk another museum hook in there right beside that other one just to be safe. Man, I need to fly over there to Hawaii and rub your sleeve just for good luck...VanTiki ROCKS!

Buzzard - Next Chop..if it don't sell it...we'll just have to see how many dogs one can fit on that platter there.

Buzzy - Mike...I thought it was for carving bananas, or cutting throats...I wasn't sure??

2 Jabs?...heh? Okay, I guess two Jabs is better than one. Man, I need another me too.

Studio news: Lot's of traveling coming up in the next few weekends, I'm going to get to kick it with Amy in New Orleans this weekend, and London the weekend before the show for the other job....I'm rushing around a bit in the studio...Unfortunately, I "rush" fired that red clay platter I showed you a while back, and lost it in the 1st firing. Yup it sucks, I should have candled the firing longer...heh...oh well. shit...That was a quick sketch one anyway to test that sculpture clay. I will feel a little more butt hurt if this one below don't make it...I've put more time into this one than that red clay one...I really hope there is no air trapped in those fishies anywhere. we'll see...Never be afraid to fail boys. You never get to that next personal level unless your ready to be kicked around a smidgen in the climb.

Gawd, I hate putting pictures of my own mug in my posts...it's Sir B's fault!



Thanks for the visit....BE COOL!....Go to the TONGA April 11th !!!!!

Bababaluba, that platter is the stuff that legends are made of! Are you going to glaze it with a blue/green ocean palette?

Please extend my condolences to the family of the red platter

PS - "Big Bang" is what you will hear if Henrik is right about that museum hook
