Metal Travel Mug
"Sawfish" by Amber Marine ~ Acrylic Painting, (c) 2015by Amber Marine
Talk about steely good looks. In addition to a 360-degree wraparound design, our metal travel mugs are crafted with lightweight stainless steel - so they're pretty much indestructible. Plus, they're double-walled to keep drinks hot (or cold), fit in almost any size cup holder and are easy to clean.
ABOUT THE ART
The smalltooth sawfish!
Acrylic painting, 2015
The sawfishes (which are in the ray family) are living prehistoric marvels. The critically endangered smalltooth sawfish (Pristis pectinata) can reach a massive 25 feet long (Whoa!) and inhabits shallow coastal and inshore waters.
Sawfish face dangers from entanglement in nets and fishing gear. Fisherman who catch sawfish are warned not to remove the animal from the water, and not to harm the animal in any way - disentangle and release them immediately, without pausing to take pictures. Every living sawfish is critical to the survival of the species - respect them!
