Hound & Squab by T&A Friendly
Hound & Squab, 2010 (20 x 28 x 12 inches)
This is my hound and squab taxidermy team. The hound's name is Raleigh but unfortunately, I never caught the squab's name. He may have been in the navy though. I'm just judging by the tattoo on his left wing.
I've been dreaming about this piece for so long and I finally had the time to complete it. It was greatly inspired by two things: 1. Was this hound & fowl statue I see almost on a daily basis sitting in the yard of a neighbor and 2. Is the film Fantastic Mr. Fox.
This is my neighbor's statue. I'm so tempted to offer them a price on it.
