The subject matter of this box figurine is serious, as Peter was in a serious frame of mind, contemplating the near extinction of the Giant Panda.
The tombstone inside inscribed "1000 to Save" and the "1000" carved on a bamboo shoot refers to what scientists believed was the number of giant pandas remaining in the mountains of China at the time of carving.
Not only are pandas threatened by poaching, but by the deforestation of the bamboo forests where they live.  Bamboo, being the panda's staple diet, is essential to its survival.  Nonetheless, in this box figurine, the panda shares his bamboo with the mouse.
On Version One, the bamboo shoots are tinted yellow and the leaves are green.  Later versions had untinted bamboo shoots.   As you see in the pictures, our box is a Version One.
