True to its origins Moomin mug 2017 6-pack
The True to its Origin is the new Moomin mug, released in Autumn 2017. This mug is part of a series of porcelain products that reflect Tove Jansson's own journey through life. She wrote her last Moomin book late in November, shortly after her mother died. During this time, she withdrew from public life to deal with her grief, whilst experiencing difficult feelings of loss and sorrow. The Faith Origin is a reflection of this period in Tove Jansson's life. The pattern is based on two stories; Late in November and the Papa and the sea. Both of these stories share a mutual, melancholy tone.
The book, Late November does not feature the Moomintroll at all- the only people described in the story are the other inhabitants of Moomindale who miss Moomintroll and want him to come back. All characters have different reasons to visit the Moomin House and they are all equally disappointed when the family cannot be found anywhere. The characters Fillyjonk, Hemulen, Mymble and Snufkin remain in the empty house and attempt to live in the same way as their beloved Moomin family had done.
In their absence they learn a lot about themselves. In the book, Papa and the Sea, the Moomin family decide to move to a lighthouse. During the season of autumn, the ocean was unpredictable and wild and all characters experienced the new environment in their own personal way. The Moomintroll preferred to sit alone, the Moomin mother missed her home and the Moomin Pappa tried to understand the powers of nature. The only thing that was similar was Little My, as she understood the mystery and the gloomy atmosphere surrounding the island. The pattern on the mug reflects Tove Jansson's feelings at this time and the illustrations share these thoughts and feelings around the world.
