Despite its name, the maned wolf is not a wolf at all, nor is it a fox, coyote, or dog. It is the only member of the Chrysocyon genus, making it a truly unique animal, not closely related to any other living canid. One hypothesis for this is that the maned wolf is the last surviving species of the Pleistocene Extinction, which wiped out all other large canids from the continent.

“I’m not sure how Jade Townsend’s mind works but it’s a marvelous thing to behold. His imagery is steeped in a form of 19th C. fantasia that includes a strong spirit of invention, but there is also a gruesomeness here that makes his objects emotionally charged and abstract. Make sure if you’re anywhere near this show you check it out.” - Hyperallergic, Hrag Vartanian
