Secrets:  Lobsters caught my attention when I read they are the only creatures that we still kill at 'home' before eating - death by boiling - no wonder it goes bright red - it must be fuming! Talking of colors, lobsters (like Harmony Kingdom collectibles) occasionally turn up in strange colors. According to the Lobster Institute, there is a one in two million chance of finding a blue lobster, on in ten million of a red one, one in 30 million of a yellow lobster and one in 100 million chance of finding an albino lobster. There are also various half and half colors. My only encounter with a live lobsters was during a family holiday on the Welsh coastline. After a stormy night I was up early beach-combing, hoping to find a shipping container of BMWs swept off a cargo ship - no such luck but several lobster pots had been washed ashore so I spent the next hour releasing the lobster inmates back into the sea! This piece combines all those thoughts. Reggio Emilia carved on the piece is a place in Italy where it is illegal to boil a lobster.
