I was just browsing through Meyer's enormous Oceanic Art book when I realised that one of the illustrations showing a helmet mask from Vitu Island was incredibly similar to a mug I'd brought back from Spain. Here's a photo:



The design of this mug had always struck me as being rather odd, so it's a little mystery solved.

So THAT is what that mug looks like! I remember it from the thread where you'd taken the photo from above. Never seen it before - very nice!

Note to self: Maybe Humuhumu was right about going to Spain after all...

Good one, Woody! I love digging thru Oceanic Art books for that purpose.
