This is a short story and a long story. It's also a visual story that goes back more than 20 years to when I acquired a unique family of 4 carved figures and my growing curiosity as to who made them and why. I know where they were produced and have new information on when they were made. Follow my exploration. Also check out my website at www.miltsimpson.com .
