S e c r e t s

The sloth is a slow-moving mammal that inhabits the tropical forests of South and Central America. They can live for more than ten years, spending nearly their entire existence hanging from trees by their long limbs. To portray suspension, Master Carver Peter Calvesbert left the base completely smooth to suggest nothingness. He says, “I enjoyed carving this box figurine because it fits into my weird and wonderful category, both in look and movement, or should I say lack of movement.” These animals move in such slow motion that algae grow on their coarse hair, giving the sloth a greenish tinge. Its hair is also home to the sloth moth, a flutter of which is depicted in the interior. Each year the female produces a single offspring. Notice the baby sloth tucked between momma’s limbs. Look for the initials L.B., which stand for Leanna Barron, who suggested this piece. Also, look for Peter’s signature hidden mouse.
