This needlefelted red fox has the posture and intent expression of one on the hunt. It would make a wonderful accent piece in a library, on a mantle, and even in an office.
The sculpture was constructed over a wire armature. The pelt is a custom blend of wool and alpaca for a soft, fur-like quality. Small amounts of these fibers were applied in layers using a shingle pattern; a time consuming process that results in a natural look. Note the subtle gradation of color from head to tail; the hind quarter appearing more grey. The underside is finished with equal care.
Slight pose adjusts can be made in the standing position for display purposes.
Measures 13 inches long and 5.4 inches tall at the ear tips.
Materials: Wool, alpaca, aluminum wire, chenille pipe cleaner, horsehair.
