Tarlo & Graham - The Trickster, Close-Up

skyhorse

Melbourne, Australia

Artist's Description

“Tarlo & Graham” sell antiques, art deco, taxidermied critters & various other oddities – their window displays are unbelievably different.

Well the current theme is totem animal mannequins – the others are skulls, but this fabulous specieman is a Canadian coyote.

In Native American legends, coyote often plays the role of trickster, god of tricks, although in some stories he is a buffoon and the butt of jokes and in a few is outright evil. His positive traits include humor and sometimes cleverness. His negative traits are usually greed or desire, recklessness, impulsiveness and jealousy. Coyote is often the antagonist of his brother Wolf, who is wise and good natured but prone to giving in to Coyote’s incessant demands.
