    The armadillo is the state mammal of Texas.

    On a related subject:
    I love the works of Walton Ford as throwbacks to Audubon and diaries of 19th c. travelers and naturalists.


    That's my favorite Ford painting.

    Here's a cheap and dust-free alternative from the hand of Picasso: [​IMG] Bull's Head, 1943. Also good for vegans, I suppose. I made my own replica a few years ago - people still compliment it, often without knowing about the original.

    though, that saddle/seat is likely made of leather.

    Fair point, but you'd have to find an antique one for approx. authentcity.

    ^That first one is very funny and cute.
    Another related segment would be the Chinese scholar's rocks which symbolize the lonely and elegant disdain of the ideal Chinese scholar:
    Ah! This puts your love of "distain" in a new context. I'm now reminded of various Asian religions, and the Jesuit "indifferentia." Both of which I find legitimate, though dangerous if misunderstood and poorly practiced. How would you define distain? What are your influences?

    Indeed, that piece is probably my favorite work by Cattelan. Then again, I do have a bit of a fetish for miniatures....
