Coup d'etat Prototype
 

Coup d'etat was carved by Master Carver Peter Calvesbert in 2008. It was released in a limited edition of 1000. The piece examines the production of foie gras, a well-known French delicacy. Foie gras means "fat liver," an apt name as ducks and geese are force fed corn mash until their livers are up to ten times their normal size. In typical Black Box fashion, the tables are turned. Five ducks take revenge by force feeding Master Carver Peter Calvesbert. One of the sacks of corn is labeled "LIVERBURST" (a play on the name of the German sausage). This can be the unfortunate consequence of force feeding.

  • This prototype is a solid piece, with the usual hallmarks.
  • It does not include the inscriptions that appear on the final version: the base does not have the names of the countries that have outlawed foie gras production, nor does it have "ARNY 2012" inscribed on it.
  • The base is marked "BLACK BOX PROTOTYPE."
