Lemmings breed at a rate which can make rabbits look like responsible parents. Every few years their numbers reach such proportions that a mass migration ensues. During the migration some may get pushed over cliffs or drown while swimming to new habitats, giving rise to the suicide myth. As such, Master Carver Peter Calvesbert decided to depict this thickset rodent as reluctant to meet his maker. The survivalist dons a parachute, inflatable dinghy, armbands, hard hat and goggles. He also carries flares, a mobile phone and a knife. His two friends are less than impressed. The interior contains a young lemming reading a “don’t run” sign, a warning that he’s well advised to heed.
