The last time I descended upon “Willis Wonderland” I almost missed this framed cow portrait done in leather, Allee had to point it out to me. What can I say, my head spins when at “WW” and the more I look at this, the more I want one for myself.

    It’s actually NAUGAHYDE, which makes it much more prized than leather!

    My friends who collect Western motif stuff always try to get this away from me. That will never happen!

    I love the branded frame too. Though I love nothing more than how the cow is stuffed and very dimensional. I remember thinking when this stuffed Ann Margret was submitted to AWMOK that I wished she was mine to sit next to the cow.

    It is true that the hyde of the illusive nuaga is much more valuable that meer leather, so much so that it has been hunted to near extinction in West Feliciana parish just north of here. There used to be an annual ball held to glorify the nauga and it’s cousin the even more ellusive bopotamus, tho i don’t remember exactly what the bopotamus really was, other than maybe mythical and an excuse for a party…..I will have to make a photo excursion up into North Baton Rouge soon as there is a furniture repair place that deals with/repairs the hyde of the nauga. The sign is classic from what i remember.
