    Frida Fjellman takes a great interest in the anatomy of the animals she depicts, researching it thoroughly before starting work on her sculptures. Her fox is a carefully crafted representation, faithful to nature. She sees the animal she has portrayed as an observer, sitting watching and monitoring its surroundings, or as
