Wood sculpture of a human/fox figure hold a rifle, carved out of found objects. Valyi works with all sorts of materials - chairs, old furniture, bones, guns, implements, or appliances. "Sometimes a friend will put a piece of something in my hand and express the hope that I can use it. Not only is my community embedded in my sculptures but my work also signifies time for me by recording particular experiences and stories. It does satisfy me to some small extent that instead of using more or our planet’s resources I’m trying to use up an infinitesimally small amount of what we already have." - Susan Valyi
