My menagerie

There’s a story behind these figures atop one of the bookcases in my studio. The chrome squirrel is also a nutcracker, one my wife found at a yard sale. Squirrels have been a big problem for us, including the ones who have devoured large sections of the crown molding on the barn. You also know about us and rabbits. This one is a bookend, from one direction, or a candle holder, from the other. The upright stick is a piece of driftwood. Oh yes, behind them is a piece of beaver labor, a branch stripped and chewed from both ends.
