Squirrel Appreciation Day

Happy Squirrel Appreciation Day!

Did you know that #squirrels are found almost everywhere on Earth? They are native to Africa, the Americas, Europe, and Asia, and have been introduced to Australia.

Squirrels range in size, with the smallest known species measuring at 7.62 centimetres on average. The largest squirrel, on the other hand, can grow to a length of 1 metre.

Here are a handful of artistic interpretations of our bushy-tailed friends from across our collection.

This Squirrel Dish was designed by English potter, tile-maker and novelist William De Morgan at Sands End Pottery in Fulham. It is made from tin glazed earthenware with ruby and gold lustre, c. 1888-1907. See it on display in gallery 64. On loan from the De Morgan Foundation.

Squirrels and Inkstone. Ink and colour on gold-flecked paper by Xu Gu c. 1823-1896. 


Squirrel on Fruit by Seiko Takeuchi. Colour woodblock print. #Japan, 1890-1940.

Here’s Vex and Percy from the Critical Role fanfic The Wise Man’s Tree by @curriebelle ! It’s still a WIP, but I figured I’d share it here since I already posted to my Twitter ¯\_(ツ)_/¯
