------------------------------------------------------------------------------


I was
arrested  and interrogated in Hong Kong!

:faint:

(Flying to New Zealand out of Korea for a
 "Weta Workshop" show I was apart of,)

  I was gifted a beautiful bow by the Charmin of Korea
and I had just the bow (no string and no arrows)

as a
carry on.  It went through the Korea
customs just
fine and it wasn't until I flew into Hong

Kong and went through their
transfers
A stern looking
Asian lady with short chopped hair

grabbed the
case the bow was in and demands 

 

"What is this!?"

 

 I reply "Oh, this was just a gift, a
bow without arrows or string." 

 

She calls over some other people
and they talk amongst themselves
in their own
language

 

"We've called the police.  They will
be here shortly."  They escort me
aside and sat me down. 

When the first
policemen arrives
he is a stern looking Asian
man and
non of them
speak

English well at all.    I try to explain
to him that it was a
gift and I didn't
know bows were not

allowed in Hong Kong and that if it

was any
trouble at all, I would be ok to leave it there

behind with them.  I say very calmly
and as sweetly as I can.   He angrily shushes me and

starts to take pictures of the bow and writing
things down. 

(Apparently they
thought I was going
to pull out a
rubberband and some pencils

from my
purse and go "Katniss" on everyone.) 
 He then comes over to me

and says something stern.  I didn't
understand
a word he was saying his Asian accent

was too heavy.  I tried to explain I couldn't
understand his accent.  This angers him

and he begins yelling right up into my
face
like you see on those intense interrogation

films. (Like I was going to
understand better
now that he was yelling) 

Asking what was my
occupation

 

I said calmly "I'm an artist."

 

  "An ARCHER!?" He yells.

 

 I sweetly replay "No I work with clay" 
I then write down "Clay and Artist" So he could

understand what I was saying.  He seemed satisfied
with the
answer.   

 

  He then starts explaining (all interrogative like
and still yelling) something else and

he had to
repeat himself over and over so he got
angrier and angrier.  "Bows are illegal

here, only two things will
happen to you now. 
You will ether be
arrested and taken to

Hong Kong
prison.   Or you will be arrested
and taken to Hong Kong
prison held on trail

and be
fined a lot of money!  Ether way you
are not
leaving Hong Kong!"   

(He says all this right up yelling in my
face
I stayed completely calm and
absolutely

sweet and the picture of innocents the entire time. 
If I was going to jai, I had might as well go with
grace and dignity.
  (While also
praying hard that I'd stay that way)  

Now that I had the
basic idea of the point he was
trying to say in English, everything else

he said that I didn't
understand at all, I just
politely nodded and said an occasional

"Ok,--- ah, I
understand, --oh I'm sorry I
didn't know, it was just a
gift."   Then gradually he

started to calm down.  If I were to get upset too,
or showed any sign that I was even slightly

afraid or
nervous.  It would have escalated the
situation.  People mirror your emotions I noticed

that while
giving tours and speeches.  If you are
upset, they are upset, If you are calm happy,

they are calm and
happy.  

 

  I then catch the last part he's saying,
"I will now
decide which of the options I will

send you on."   I reply sweetly with a nod, "Ok." 
More policemen showed up around 8

of them now.  They then talked amongst
themselves for a long time in their own language.  

They all first looked at the bow, all sternly.
  Then when they turned to look at the culprit,

deadly criminal, sitting there all innocently.
  Some of their stern expressions broke and

some even smiled!  They talked some more
and one of the Hong Kong airport custom

workers who was a young Asian man about
my age and was also filling out my papers

of "being legal."   He leans over to me and says
"Don't be nervous, it's going to be alright."  

 

 The first policeman who was first interrogating
me approaches me again and says. 

"You know what?  I am not legally supposed
to do this, but  I've decided I want to
let you go on you way.  You can even have


your bow but it wont make it any farther
then here.  If you still would like it, you have

two weeks to come back to Hong Kong and
mail it to yourself in a package.  

Have a nice day."  I stood up and bowed the
traditional Asian way in thanks and got to my
next flight just in the nick of time!

About "Wood-Splitter-Lee":



I was born and raised in Alaska and am self taught. I just enjoy creating original, life-like fantasy creatures since age 18 2011.

My work was noticed by the film company of "Stan Winston's Studio's" (The creators of "Jurassic Park") and the film company: "Weta Workshop" The creators of "Lord of the Rings" "Narnia" "King Kong" ect, which I was then invited to New Zealand where I worked on some personal projects at Weta Workshop. Then from there was invited to Korea. I just feel incredibly blessed. :thanks: Thank you all for your overwhelming support, bringing joy to you is the highlight of my day! :tighthug:

I'm new to your work, and I have to say it's amazing, I've never seen anything like it, and I would love to know how it's done. What do you make the skeletons out of? How do you get the faces so expressive? How do you decide what you're going to make next?

Your work is one of the most impressive and awesome things I ever saw.. I hope somedayI can afford one (Also, just out of curiosity, would you be willing to send one of those to Brazil? I know it's a pain (believe me, I know, our mailing services sucks and I do understand why lots of sellers doesn~t even think about sending stuff here, but... Just in case... Someday, who knows).

Also, please, let me watch you, being able to watch those marvelous creatures really inspire me.
Thanks *Free Icon/Emote* Pusheen (So exciting!)
