SECRETS OF THE BOX:
Mother Nature's version of a tank, the formidable rhinoceros knows no predator other than humans.
Poachers have hunted the tough-skinned beasts nearly to extinction for the sake of their horns, which have supposed medicinal properties.
In this box figurine, rhinos exact their revenge by harvesting human noses.  The newspaper headline notes - "Manilow and Pinocchio Missing" - could they be prime targets for nose poachers?
One of the rhinos has shot Peter in the foot with a gun called "Old Rhinoblasty" - a take on "rhinoplasty", the ubiquitous nose job.
The vulture keeps an eye out for any spare noses for lunch.
A bag of freshly picked noses rests under Peter's foot.
Around the base are the names of rhino species with the numbers of each believed to exist.
In one interior compartment are four human skulls.   In the second, some of the animals from Ed's Safari bus seek refuge.

SECRETS OF THE BOX:
The 2002 Black Box echoes the vulture theme of the first Black Box, introduced in 1998.
Three vultures feast on a hapless zebra, the perennial wildlife documentary victim. 
Watching vultures feed, it seems nothing would shock them!  Would it be a terrible faux pas to appear suddenly from where the sun don't shine?   Judging from the scowling faces, the book of "Vulture Etiquette" evidently says yes.
A pretzel by the wayside remains untouched.  Having heard of President Bush's mishap,  the birds have decided to leave this dangerous morsel alone.
 
The interior shows a hamburger, feather knife, and fork.
"20022002" highlights the palindromic nature of this year.
Around the inside of the lid are myriad references to fast food.
The mouse is located behind a vulture's leg.

SECRETS OF THE BOX:
A variety of animals are all crowded into a single pen, representative of the inhumane conditions on a large-scale "factory" farm.
A conveyor belt carries away the final products.
"Methane Zone" indicates the contribution toward global warming.  "No Smoking" warns of the dangers of igniting lingering gases.
On the interior, a chicken acts out a scene from "The Great Escape", starring Steve McQueen as Virgil Hilts.   The plate from the motorcycle he rides in the film is at the chicken's feet (Stalag luft 11 was the name of the prison).
 
The mouse peers out from between a cow's hooves.  on the underside of the same hooves is "Sam" a reference to the artist's young son, and "?" because a second name will soon be needed for a new arrival.
The carved bird on the side of the lid with "36" on it, represents the number of bird species that Peter has spotted in his garden.
