Goddess of the Body by ~Recycled-Oxygen. According to the artist, all her painted tea bowls "are inspired by the Japanese Bushido gang and their beautifully intricate tattoos that cover their bodies. The right side of the cup is a torso of a man. On the other side of the tea bowl is the Goddess Benten. She is the maiden deity of water and the arts and the only woman among the Seven Gods of Luck and Fortune. She represents the gentle arts of music, painting, literature, and soft speech. The clay body is 181 white stoneware. It was bisqued to cone 6, painted and refired to cone 04 then glazed and fired for the final time to cone 1. The painting process usually takes me 10-15 hours per cup." ( Featured by Kitten-of-Woe )

I'd never drink out of this cup if I owned it, I'd put it on a shelf to worship it. :D
