Matariki Heat Changing Mug

$13.00 NZD $26.00 NZD

This Matariki Heat Changing Mug features a stunning NASA photograph of the Matariki asterism, also known as the Pleiades or the Seven Sisters. It magically reveals itself as you add hot liquid to the cup.


Sparkling in the winter sky just before dawn, Matariki signals the Māori New Year. Traditionally this was a time to remember the dead and celebrate new life. With this mug you can easily become familiar with the constellation and impress your friends by pointing it out in the night sky. 


At first glance this Matariki mug is plain black. Simply add your favourite hot drink and watch as the bright blue stars of Matariki slowly emerge from the darkness. Stargazing has never been so cozy!
