Arty Tuesday: Armadillos by Seba

In October I usually go to a professional meeting and our mascot is an armadillo. Armadillo art is usually a bit odd so perfect for this eerie month…

The most abundant usage of armadillos in art is illustrations from earlier centuries (such as this), and musical instruments or accessories made with hides.
