2002 Tarzana ECOF convention,

Seen below is the ornate John Carter sword carved by Danton's father,
John Coleman Burroughs.
JCB had used this sword as a model for the many book and comic strip

Danton also unearthed another intriguing hand-carved model -
a fully positional, many-limbed Barsoomian thoat.
