We are all familiar with Aesop’s fable where the brash, overconfident hare loses to the slow and steady tortoise. In this box figurine, carver David Lawrence depicts the hare lounging atop the tortoise. Is the hare really that nervy, or have the two racers decided that friendship outpaces competition? Interestingly, in certain cultures such as the Cherokee, Zambian and Korean, the tortoise is depicted as a sly and cunning trickster. Regardless of the personalities, all of these fables are meant to teach us humans important life lessons. The clock, carved into the interior, reminds us that we’d better get wise sooner than later. 131 carved into the lid lip signifies that this is carver David Lawrence’s 131st HK box figurine.
