Peter’s dragon is back, and this time he is being bothered by none other than St. George. But the knight isn’t faring so well and has just dropped his trusty sword. The inedible bits of other knights are found within the dragon’s stomach. The date of St. George’s day in the UK, April 23, is inscribed on the lid, as is the first year it was celebrated – 1222. “Bill 1564-1616” refers to that famous scribbler William Shakespeare who was born and died on St George’s day. Shakespeare’s death in 1616 reminded Peter that the Barn Owl box in his field is also numbered 1616; hence, the word “owl” on the lid. Seventy pieces from this fixed edition of 600 were created in special colorways for Art’s West Unique Gifts’ 2009 event featuring Peter Calvesbert. 35 “Guest of Honor” were tinted light crimson and 35 vivid amber.
