Little scary ey??? That's the idea behind it. They were made to do just that! Scare away evil spirits. They were put in and around ones lodge to chase off the bad spirits. This one is a bobcat skull wrapped in a fox fur tail. Quite a hair doo (kind of hard to tell in pictures since it is close to the skull color) on this one & I have added a feather gotee...it all gives him the beatnick look...wish I had the hat! The feathers are different colors of rooster saddles. A rust color & a black cream & tan color. I use black buckskin strips to hang the feathers & the beads are silver along with rust & cream bone beads. He is about 28" long without the hanging strap & 6 1/2" wide.
