New Kit on the block...

Well here she is...
Folks, meet Aurora.
She is the latest in my 'cruelty free taxidermy' series.
How wonderful to have a trophy such as a beautiful fox without the
dreaded and horrible ritual of the fox hunt!
Many folklore tales portray the fox as a trickster and tell of  'Reynard'
covering itself with blood and then playing dead to unsuspecting birds...who then
try to prey on the dead animal only to be devoured by the fox.
Foxes are seen as sneaky, evil little devils but I beg to differ...
I love the look of a fox.
Their beautiful long sleek red fur, the white tufts on their mane,
little pricky ears and those whiskers!
Foxes are survivors, top of the heap preditors.
Devoted to family.
So Aurora is a cruelty free trophy head joining the 
fine company of Orvis the Big horn sheep and Ursula the bear...
Available here in my shop...
(update: fox has been sold)

Oh my goodness, Aurora is beautiful. The details around the eyes, the ears, and the white and red hair...fantastic! I love stories about the fox, and one of my favorites takes me back to my days reading Chaucer in college. I like that no animal was hurt in this process!! Well done!
