“The Fox Hole is a mural located at the north entrance of the iconic Fiddler’s Green. This mural features a portrait of the North American Red Fox gazing west over a fruiting cluster of mushrooms towards the Rocky Mountains. Some floral elements adorn the scene including an unfurling rose and chrysanthemum paired with geometric components aimed at representing fire and cycles. Together these elements work to embody the fox spirit while revering the power and potential of spring energy, sun, fire, growth, and rebirth.”
