Growing up in a family of antique dealers, you are involuntarily submerged into mini-history lessons and introduced to all sorts of antique artifacts. One of the (many) things I always wanted at yard sales or flea markets are old fox hunt paintings.
Being that I had little money with me back in those days, I could never afford any prints or paintings. I love learning about old traditions. Even though fox hunts are something of the southern American culture, I always associated this hunt as more of an old English tradition instead. Usually, a sport for the elite.
Apparently, a fox-scented rag, or towel, was dragged over a path. After the sound of a gun or horn was made, the dogs were off, the horses followed, the hunt was on.
