Someday I want to add a hyena skull and a fox skull to my curios cabinet. I think it would be fun congruency. A canine response to a typically feline niche and a feline response to a typically canine niche.
Plus I really love both of those critters and having those skulls around would be awesome, even if I can only get ahold of replicas.

I created this piece, titled “Foxes in the Henhouse”, for an art show featuring decorated frames; sadly, the show was cancelled, but I still got to make this awesome assemblage piece (along with another one here)! I started with a weathered barn wood frame that I got at a thrift store. A pair of red fox skulls found in the woods are the primary adornments; one carries a chicken bone left over from supper a while back, while the other has possession of a few rooster feathers. The skulls are joined by a variety of natural and found materials, from moss and lichens to pages from out-of-date biology text books.
