Great Expectations HK Secrets:

Covets are whimsical yet functional boxes, combining three dimensional carving and detailed etching. The exterior of "Great Expectations" features a lizard approaching an egg. The interior portrays a lizard on a rock, partially etched and partially sculpted, with room enough to store special treasures.
