Research confirms that coyotes in New Brunswick have bred with wolves, which explains why they are considerably larger than their Western cousins. Some biologists suggest that we are witnessing the evolution of a new species, a successful hybrid of coyote and wolf, thus “coywolf”. What interests me is the concept that the wolf, supposedly long vanished from our region, has actually returned in the disguise of a coyote.
Using taxidermy forms, luxurious velvets and brocades, furs and jewels, I have created a version of this wolf-coyote, an animal that is an expert in matters of disguise, a consummate trickster.
Lift up the latch and come in my darling.
Grandma! What big eyes you have.
