Found this beauty in "la lagunilla" Mexico City's flea market... paid 4 dollars for it.

I'm almost positive it is the (never seen before) scorpion bowl from Mauna Loa Mexico... who can confirm?
Hasta la vista amigos!

Confirmed. That looks like an older mold version of the Bali Hai bowl on the left, sans Maori moko:

Grouping together a few more images from other threads:








Nice Sidewinder's Fang-style mug there. Wonder if one has ever been found.

Mimi's large-format pic of the interior. Check out the winged figure on the far wall:


A similar figure at the Mai Kai in Florida has been identified by GatorRob and Bob & Leroy at Oceanic Arts, as based on this Papua New Guinea carving "Representing a heron carrying away a woman a classic Sepik River creation figure."

Nice job everyone! DC, do you own that menu? Maybe I could translate it...
Look what I found in a small flea market in D.F.

Never seen before, Suzie Wong mug... $15 dollars
Hasta la vista...

Zeta,

That was not my menu, did not capture it on ebay but grabbed the images.

Here is a little more ebay-archeology.
This is a great Mauna Loa menu with the graphics and mugs shown.
