Cute Condemned Teacups
The Sisifo Coffee Cup was Consigned to Eternally Serve Your Beverage

The story of the wicked King Sisyphus is referenced in this adorable Sisifo Coffee Cup. Rolling a tremendous boulder up a hill for all of eternity was his punishment for immoral behavior, including the killing of innocent guests to his realm.

Of course the horror of this fate is not accurately expressed in this adorable piece of Soup Studio crockery, with its soft curves, cartoony sculpting and its vivid colors. What we see is the basic outline of a human body, arched over to press upon the inclining wall of the immense mass before him. The shape of the mug has been slightly distorted so to angle against the condemned character in the Sisifo Coffee Cup. It suggests his struggle as he asserts himself as your sustained servant too.
