King Of The Hill was created in England by Master Carver Peter Calvesbert. It is one of the limited edition Treasure Jests issued in 2001. This prototype has several differences from the piece that was issued:

  • The coloring is slightly different - the face is brown instead of green and the mound is much lighter

  • In addition to the normal hallmarks (Copyright, Peter's initials, Clef sign, and Smiley face) the prototype has a "1," which normally signifies a first edition. This hallmark was removed when it was decided to make this a limited edition.

  • The base is marked Pangolin C/S #001

King Of The Hill was issued in an edition of only 4,000 pieces. The animal is a pangolin, a tree-dwelling mammal, covered with scales, that resembles an armadillo. It uses its 10-inch long tongue to eat termites. Several termites can be found on this piece - one is waiving a white flag! Peter's signature mouse is tucked into the curve of the tail. Inside is the termite queen, and a book of baby names - after all, she can lay up to 36,000 eggs a day for up to 50 years - that's a lot of names to find!
