Hurly-Burly was carved by Master Carver Peter Calvesbert and originally released in 2006, in a limited edition of 1500. This cold-cast bronze version was planned as an entry in the Artist Master Series as a Bronze Artist Master, but there currently are no plans to release it.
 

Hurly-Burly HK Secrets:

There is no escaping the fact that cats are very popular, so it was about time that Peter tackled another one. "Rumble Seat" and "Tony's Tabbies" were two of his most successful sculptures, so he was ready to recreate the look. The stepladder carved in "Emperor's New Clothes" gave him the idea of what framework to use for his latest cat box figurine. He has filled the stepladder with an unfeasibly large number of cats. On close inspection, you may even find an extra head or possibly a two-headed cat. Peter inscribed "Phoenix" as he is looking forward to the 2006 HOP convention in this Arizona city. "1234" represents Millie's (Peter's two-year-old daughter) proficiency with counting. "Bambi spits" is an inside joke between Peter and Harmony Ball's Bobbie Hill. The hidden rattlesnake makes his second appearance on this fixed edition box figurine, and the interior portrays a cat covered in paint.
