The HK House of Peers and Harmony Kingdom offered you the
opportunity to win the original prototype of War and Peace, an
extremely rare Peter Calvesbert figurine. At the same time you would be
assisting NAMI (National Alliance for the Mentally Ill), a grass roots
organization dedicated to eradicating mental illness and improving the
quality of life for those affected by these diseases.
War and Peace Prototype
War and Peace was
carved by Master Carver Peter Calvesbert and produced in England. The production piece
(Version 1 at right) was available only at the HK booth during the 2003 Rosemont IGCE in an edition
size of 500. Because of an overwhelming demand another 500 pieces were produced
with a color variation.
A hawk and a dove stand back to back, in the pose adopted by
duelists. Around their feet lie their accessories. For the hawk there's a gas
tank, a holster and big belt buckles of the American and British flags. The dove
holds out a bouquet of flowers and carries a copy of the "Kama Sutra" under one
wing, an indication of a desire to "make love, not war." Peter's signature mouse
hangs out in the hawk's holster.
This War and Peace prototype is a solid body Treasure Jest. The coloration is the same as the
Version 1 box figurine. The base however is a rectangular shape.

Another variation with the War and
