Road Kill

$65.00
This second box figurine in the Black Box series is a tribute to the countless victims of road accidents. A group of animals sit on a cloud in heaven, bearing the tyre marks of their demise. All have been elevated to angel status and have wings, except for the snake and Peter’s visiting mouse. A hedgehog peers out beneath a badger who clutches an exhaust pipe, while another badger holds the tail of a squirrel. The rabbit prepares to detonate a bomb that is inside the box; he seeks revenge on the car - the instrument of their deaths. ‘For Kelly’ on the tail refers to a pet dog that once belonged to Peter’s wife. Hallmarks include ©, star, HBC logo, and Pc.
