The HK House of Peers and Harmony Kingdom offered you the opportunity to win an extremely rare prototype of Cactus, an unreleased Lord Byron's Harmony Garden box figurine.

Sherman Drackett carved this 'Cactus' box figurine. It was carved in 2000, so it was probably intended as part of Chapter V - Lord Byron's tour of America.

This prototype was made at Wimberley Mills in England. It was never released.
