Silver Coyote Headdress III by NaturePunk Silver Coyote Headdress III by NaturePunk
I have created this headdress as more than just a skin with some leather string tied to it: It is built to be functional, sturdy, and beautiful.

Crafted from a VERY rare silvery-black coyote I purchased from a fellow artist. His face was already shaped for the most part when I got him (he was a rug before he became a headdress), but I did have to do some work to the muzzle because it warped a bit when I removed it from the padding it had been attached to. Now, it's one of the most stunning headdresses I've offered to date!

This little guy is an impressive shade of dark charcoal black with silver-tipped guard hairs and white highlights around the shoulders and sides. His face is strippled with bits of gray, white, and black, but he retains a hint of brown behind the ears and at the butt of the tail. By far one of the most unusual and unique coyote colorations I've EVER seen!

Measures 55" in overall length. Has two strips of recycled black buckskin leather attached to the sides so you can tie it atop your head as pictured.

The leather is supple and professionally treated so that it drapes effortlessly over the wearer's body. The head was rehydrated and molded over a hand-carved form to give it a more lifelike appearance. His ears stick up over the wearer's head and are slightly pricked forward in alterness and the lower jaw has two recycled leather strips attached so that you can tie it securely beneath your chin. Additional straps can be added at no extra cost.

The pelt is un-lined as of now, but I can see to it that it is lined with the felt of your choice at a small additional fee.


Perfect for Halloween, religous purposes, Burning Man, bonfire parties, Pow-Wows, costume parties, re-enactors, Mountain Man, cosplayers, renaissance fairs, Roman battle reenactments, or anyone who wants to feel more in touch with their inner animal. It also looks lovely draped over an arm chair or thrown over the back of your favorite sofa. Could also be a fantastic wall-hanging, blanket, or rug for the cabin or log home.


Custom orders are always avialable.
Sorry, no international shipping.

Yes, I heard of your work while listening on the Pagan Centered Podcast. Once I realized you had a DA account I was like -‘what? Another DA user who works with animal remains? Where’s that lovely ‘stalk’ button?’. :)

HAHA! Awesome! Doing the podcast was a lot of fun. Amber is planning to have me come back to talk about synesthesia at some point later this summer. I'm looking forward to it! :)

I bet. I think that episode is one my top favorites of theirs in a while. It was really informative (and humorous) too.

I think that would be great to have a podcast on synaesthesia (and how it can effect one’s practice and/or just daily life). I’m asynesthete as well - I taste in my mouth whatever I touch with my skin and musical notes and tones show color and shapes. I’ll be looking forward to that epsiode if/when y’all can have it. :)

Your synesthesia sounds awesome! I mostly have color-oriented synesthesia, but I do also see sequences of time in a three-dimensional space around me. In all, I have at least 13 different forms of the condition, but numbers as color and letters as color are my most prominent.

Synaesthesia in general is an interesting. I’m still trying to figure out the exact extents of mine since its hard to pin down things which ’aren’t’ normal when they’re normal to you. kind of deal.

Numbers and letters as color must me awesome as well. :)

I really like your work and love how you've put the pelts to good use. I feel like by making them into an art you've given them life again, in a sense. Their not really someone's trophy but more like.... part of the person who wears them. Feel like it's really respecting the animal and at the same time seems more natural. :)

Thank you!
I always strive to show my respect for the animals in both the process of making the pieces and in photographing them when they are completed. I do this because I believe that even though the animal has passed on, it's a way to show respect to them instead of just letting their parts be put to waste.

The people who buy my products are often very spiritual people and I trust that they understand and respect the pelts as if they are still a part of a living thing.

Well I think that it really shows in your work and that's really considerate to the animal. I feel, when you make something most people wouldn't consider art and make it artistic, people appreciate it more and see it in a different light, even respect the animals more. Also I felt like the pictures of you wearing them make the human animal connection stronger. So go you! :) Oh and I like how you curve your hand over so it looks like a paw. I though that was a good idea.

Thank you! I didn't even realize that I'd done that with my hand, but yes - you are right! I'll have to remember that for future shots. Thank you for pointing it out!

It's funny how different I feel while wearing one of these headdresses. I often go for walks in the woods at night when I can't sleep, and I'll sometimes wear a headdress out with me in order to feel closer to nature. Though the woods are usually seen as something scary at night, I don't feel that way when I'm wearing a headdress; I feel as though I'm a part of the woods as opposed to something pitted against it. It's beautiful.

Oh that wasn't intentional? Well it's good that you did it cause it added character to the picture :) I'm sure that they're also really warm to wear out at night too. :)lol
