The Polynesian islanders refer to him as “Tangata Maeneene” but around the world he is more commonly known as Suavecito. Legend goes that Tangata Maeneene, a demigod, represented romance and charm. He was a matchmaker of sorts to the Gods and everyone who believed in him. To appease him the ancient Polynesians would fill cups, with his image on them, with ceremonial drink and set it as offering. Originally, this idol was found in an ancient tomb chamber deep underground dating back many centuries. This replica idol cup was painstakingly reproduced for 1:1 accuracy. Be sure to check out the Suavecita Mug which compliments this one.
