Red Fox

2007
Category: 
This whimsical depiction of a red fox, seated and smoking a pipe during a rest from travel, references a belief in a time when humans and animals could interchange form or take on each other's behaviour. While fantastical in concept, the image is naturalistically rendered and contains real information about travelling on foot in the summer, such as the sealskin pack and method of its harness.
