Kitsune

"Kitsune," shadowbox with beaded fox skull, $95 or best offer.

On the sides of the box is the text of a Japanese folk tale:

Ono, an inhabitant of Mino, spent the seasons longing for his ideal woman. He met her one evening on a vast moor and married her. Simultaneously with the birth of their son, Ono's dog bore a pup which, as it grew up, became more and more hostile to the lady of the house. She begged her husband to kill it, but he refused. One day the dog attacked her so furiously that she lost her courage, resumed vulpine shape, leaped over a fence and fled.

"You may be a fox," Ono called after her, "but you are the mother of my son and I love you. Come back when you please; you will always be welcome." So every evening she stole back and slept in his arms.

this is awesome.
i'm going to try to get this for my bday, but if i fail could you make something similar in the future? (i'd never tell anyone not to buy something from you, so if i fail it wasn't meant for me i guess). Sorry for my horrible, net ruined punctuation and spelling, sir.

Sure, fox skulls are pretty easy to come by and I'd be happy to make you a custom piece if you can't get this one! Just let me know.

i second what she said.
it's incredibly hard for me to come by japanese fox-themed items i really connect with, considering it's a spiritual thing for me and having that would be unbelievably special. definitely considering going for it, especially with the folktale on the sides. brilliantly done - i 'vibe' with it and my favorite author made it. what could be better?
