You have to take your hat off to the brilliance of the original Fantastic Mr Fox—Monsieur Reynard himself. His fiery red robe and copper coat know every trick in the book; his quick wits, second to none. And his shrewdness has even been known to outsmart Isegrim. Throughout the ages, foxes have fascinated us as much through their appearance as their crafty cunningness. Find your favourite fox print and beautify burrow with fox art.
Yet again, Fantastic Mr Fox must save himself from a horde of angry farmers. Meanwhile, Reynard the Fox reaches into his bag of crafty tricks to wiggle his way out of another spot of bother. Foxes often find themselves in tricky situations. Faced with hunters and harsh conditions, they have to be quick to think on their paws if they are to survive out in the forest. Foxes know better than anyone: there’s no such thing as a free meal.
Their survival toolkit is made up of an acute sense of hearing, impeccable ability to smell, and lightning-fast reactions. They do have a reputation, after all: as crafty critters armed with an impressive ingenuity. That’s probably why they’re so often depicted in fox art with a cunning, yet cheeky smile.
Clever cats or daring dogs?
From their vertical pupils to their extending claws even to the way they hunt mice, there’s much to suggest that the fox is a close relative of the wildcat. But appearances can be deceiving. In fact, the fox belongs to the Canidae family, along with wolves and dogs.
Maybe this is why fox prints look so natural when framed next to wolf art. Give your canine gallery wall some finishing touches with mystical forests and enchanting landscapes for an interior with a magical glow.
Unique in all the world
As adorable as they are clever, our fiery, red friends haven’t just made their way into fables throughout the ages, but also fairy tales, cartoons and comics.
In The Little Prince, it’s a fox that tells the boy those famous wise words, “You only see well with your heart”. And in the Disney adaptation of Robin Hood, a fox even takes on the role of hero. No wonder, then, that they’re so popular among the little ones. When it comes to decorating the nursery, fox prints are definitely a must to round off any animal-themed décor.
