Additional Information:

Measurements were based on the 12" tall lantern. It is a real lantern.

It took Albert 1 1/2 days or so to finish the carving but the Haywards were not able to paint it right away as the wood needed to naturally dry. It has only been painted once so far (2003).

That is Steve's wife, Leea and daughter Jamie-Lee in the first photo. Tim Scammell provided the second photo as well as this distance shot which gives a sense of location:
