Random Adelaide Street Art

in #artlast year

I had a massive breakfast with Wifey this morning at the markets. While wandering to our destination from the car park we stumbled across what I at first though was a Pokémon.

But after closer inspection I realised that I am simply a nerd and should check things more closely before passing judgement.

Have a great weekend!

Am I a nerd for knowing you're talking about Nine-tails?

Or am I a nerd for thinking of the old whip, the Cat o' nine tails?

Not really. I knew that as well.

Both I think. :)

Well spotted.

Hey, @mazzle.

A pokemon is as good a guess as any, I suppose. I would think, though, that something called nine tails, would actually have nine tails, but hey, artists like you to interpret their work, too. :)

I keep looking at this and finding more forelegs (or paws). Seems like there are four up front and then two in the back, along with the four tails. So definitely not your run of the mill dog or canine, neither of which I could find with a simple search on Google.

It is pretty amazing though, and random, as you state. I wonder why the artist didn't paint in the bit between the head and ears? Ran out of paint? Got chased off? Or simply missed it?

There is a strange number of legs on this one. :D

It tricked us when we saw it as well.

Adelaide seems to have a rapidly increasing amount of street art these days which is nice to see.

Hey, @mazzle.

It does look familiar, though, like it could be a pokemon of some kind. I mean, it's a decent representation of some kind of cartoon character I've seen, I just don't remember where or what. I'm getting a little old for such things, anyway. :)

Of course, with grandkids I'm bound to see some it as it keeps rolling out. :)

Eh it's not far off XD

Haven't seen a 6-legged kitsune before though :O It's a cool looking piece, is it glued on there?

Nope. Painted on. I’m guilty of not knowing the name of the Pokémon. :)

You just increased my nerd level.

Not a ninetales because it only has four, closer to the base form vulpix (which has six) but they both actually have only four legs, this one might be an anomaly XD

They were based off kitsune anyway which are Asian trickster spirits that look like foxes (kitsune are Japanese which seem to be the most popular/well known but there's Chinese ones too which I can't remember the name of and they've probably gadded all over Asia and have different names in each place because they are tricksters after all XD)
