From your broad outlook, it seems that most cultures have le renard, Tabatha. All intriguing, but I love that first one-such a study! I see one come by my fence once in a while-on the way steadily, to home or food. Thank you!

The Japanese one is funny!

These are fascinating...and you've put together a wonderful selection of art featuring the fox.

I agree with Ben...the Japanese fox statue with the "bib" is very amusing. Surely there's a good story behind it!
