S e c r e t s:
A vehicle full of madcap action is a recurring HK theme, seen in The Harmony Circus, the Black Box series, and the Fab Five and Ed’s Safari pieces. In celebration of the 10 year anniversary of The Royal Watch, David depicts heroes and souvenirs from his earlier box figurines. The car is christened “Road Gods”, in honor of its esteemed passengers: a Victoriana cat who has borrowed a ruff from one of the original circus dogs; a holy backseat driver, hoping and praying for the best; a pirate monkey (an unreleased piece of David’s) standing sentinel; and a frightened pig jumping ship at the rear. Stuffed into the car are the bric-a-brac picked up through the years: a string of Mr. Sediment’s sausages, Sharazad’s slipper, and one of Kitty’s kippers poking out from beneath the exploding hood. The interior contains a torn ticket to The Harmony Circus, David’s eccentric collection that is now retired. The motto “Qou Vadis” means “Wither Goest Thou”, an apposite epithet. On this anniversary year, we wonder what the next ten years hold in store.
