S e c r e t s: Five lionesses and one lion slumber in a relaxed group, unaware that a sleepwalking antelope has wandered into their midst. The mouse is hidden in the lion's mane. Savanna grass, a snakeskin, and lion footprints are carved on the inside of the figurine. Inscribed on the lip of the lid is the warning 'THE DANGER OF SLEEPWALKING.' The inscription 'Martha's Son' refers to a racehorse on which Peter bet during the local Cheltenham Gold Cup Week. Carved into the bottom rim of the base are the initials 'HB' and an image of a comet to commemorate the Hale Bopp Comet of 1997. The little house is the one that Peter and Andrea almost bought while he was working on this piece. Hallmarks include ©, heart, HBC logo, ed.#, and Pc.
