Peter loves to carve what he calls the 'weird and wonderful' animals of the world. The intriguing peculiarity of the baboon is his remarkable facial colouring, not to mention his bright blue and red bottom, surely eye-catching to the lady baboons! Out of a sense of decorum, Peter included only the baboon’s colourful face. Peter’s initials appear within the long, curving fingers of the baboon’s hand. The mouse hides out under a shaggy thigh. Those collectors still searching for a 'Back Scratch' will find one in miniature on the interior of Version 1. Version Infinity contains a back scratcher to help the baboon get to those hard to reach places.
