Inspired by my Fox Picture on the sidebar to the right I thought I would blog my small Fox collection. I bought the white pot at the Harrogate Autumn Flower show.They had a pheasent on one, and this fox on the other.I had not bought anything up to that point, but the desire to buy a souvenir overcame me!
Fran knew I bought a Fox in a Box, and when she went to the Carboot Sale she must have found the Fox and cub. An ornament made in Scotland.A small collection has begun...
Foxes have been part of British Wildlife for thousands of years. The strange practise of fox hunting still polarises the country now. I love them, as noisy as they are at night. People with poultry do not like them.
They are part of the landscape, and have moved from the countryside to the city. Like updated town and country mouse, there must be Rural Foxes, and Urban Foxes.
Artists use the natural world as inspiration for their art.I have not seen foxes as ornaments, since I bought Mum one years ago, A fox dressed as a country lady complete with dress and Royal Ascot Hat. (I added the top image from Ebay after i looked on there)
Badgers, Foxes, Owls, Garden birds, and Hedgehogs have all crossed over between the natural world and the artistic representation of them.I am looking out now for more Foxy ornaments or pictures :)
