Tarlo & Graham - The Trickster, Close-Up by skyhorse

Tarlo & Graham - The Trickster, Close-Up by 

“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.

    Boy guy. I would rather seen them alive. But awesome clarity and color. We have a pack of Coyote’s that visit in the back forty.

  • I’d rather see them live & free too – but seeing this in Australia was what caught my eye!

    In some legends, Coyote brought fire. However, Crow brought fire in others, and you can tell because he’s been singed permanently to remind the People not to steal from the gods.
