This comical limited edition Giclee’ print image features a classic confrontation from time immemorial between Mr. and Mrs. Tasmanian Devil, painted in a style informed by the famed Paleolithic sacred cave paintings at Lascaux and Chauvet-Pont-d’ Arc, France. Riding the back of a Bison and brandishing a spear, Taz seems yet overmatched when faced with “The Misses”, who wields little more than a chicken leg, matching shoes and hair ribbon and a copious and fierce attitude. Somehow it’s easy to believe that when Mrs. Taz takes her partner to task, it’s Taz who’ll cave!
