Hedgehogs underrepresented in the visual arts

As Lancelot has frequently observed to me, Hedgehogs are seriously underrepresented in the visual arts. Dogs are de rigeur, cats are commonplace, rabbits routine, but the noble and elegant hedgehog is rarely to be seen - until now. Here we see a splendid example of this honorable creature, a ceramic hedgehog from Mexico, complete with decorative cacti. Lancelot was so thrilled to be given this sculpture by his dear friend Nancy that he has not stopped smiling in 48 hours.
