Status at CP

Many years ago on the tiny Pacific island called "Kraa-Olah," tiny men carved faces into the colorful pointy wax cylinders that dot the landscape. Suburban Chicago teacher Stephanie Hargreaves was the first to discover these tiny works of art and now she's taking all the credit for them. Whatever, as if we believe a regular-sized person could have made these. She sent us five examples, but sadly, two were broken in the mail, or maybe by tiny earthquakes on Kraa-Olah.

Back to the Shop.
