Boom Box was issued as a box figurine in a fixed edition size of 5000 pieces worldwide in the fall of 2003. Carved by Master Carver Peter Calvesbert, Boom Box was produced in England. The Boom Box offered here is a solid body prototype.

HK Secrets: What better fish to turn into a box figurine than the boxfish. Box fish are also known as "Neutron Bomb" fish for the toxic substance they release to protect themselves when frightened. Spring in England is heralded by the call of the cuckoo as it arrives from Africa. (Peter Calvesbert spotted one on 22 April, as indicated on the rocks. The interior of the figurine is laid out like an aquarium. "F.L." stands for Fat Larry, aka "Zoom," the name of Peter's goldfish when he lived in London. The mouse is in danger of becoming a boxfish snack.)

This solid body prototype differs in several ways from the actual production piece.

  • There is no interior, so the references to Fat Larry (above secrets) and the mouse are missing.
  • The references to the Cuckoo and the date (above secrets) are not on the rocks.
  • There are no hallmarks.
  • The bottom of the base is marked BOX FISH PROTOTYPE.
