This annual event Treasure Jest depicts two smooching warthogs, with sprigs of mistletoe and bears three inscriptions on the inner lid. “Sounder” refers to a group of warthogs. “Growler” is the scheming young warthog of Lion King fame. “Phacochoerus Porkus” is Peter’s Latin interpretation of the species. “A10” on the base is a reference to the American tank busting jet, also known as the warthog. Lift the lid to see a warthog enjoying a mud bath with his rubber duck.
The standard piece had an edition size of 245. There are 35 of a color variation, each with brown tint and golden tusks, 70 of a mold variation that has been Santafied. And a very special, one-of-a-kind piece, hand-painted by Peter and bedecked in jewels was also created.
