mixed media sculpture, H: 11″ from base
This piece was hard to photograph. This rangy, three-legged Coyote is made from stiffened fabric, wire, found objects, collage and other media. He is adorned with many details, both serious (the word “fidelity” over his heart) and humorous (the compass rose at the base of his tail, with North pointing to his head and South pointing to his rear-end). His tail is made in part from coyote fur. His empty belly contains messages about hunger and survival, along with an actual mouse skull (suspended in the center), which I extracted from an owl pellet.
