Wolf Woman Returns!!!

There is good restaurant here in Salinas, by the name of Taquitos, formerly Taquitos. Been around for at least 30 years. Decor leaves much to be desired, but we would like to think that all of the effort goes into the food, which is really good.

However, there is one disturbing thing about this restaurant.

It is on the way to the Restrooms.

In a corner.

It is the Painting of the Wolf Woman.

We first noticed this when we took Heather to this restaurant with our favourite Canadians to celebate her birthday.

Someone had to go to the restroom, and someone said that there was a strange painting.

Just what is going on here in this painting? It is trying to express the duality of mankind in these troubled times? The interconnectedness of man and nature? Was this the last item for sale at a garage sale?

What ethnicity is this Wolf woman? How did they get the wolf to pose for this? Why is the wolf's neck so thick? Why is one shoulder bare on the woman?

Why are the wolf's eyes cross-eyed?

Why do we care?!?

These are just some of the thoughts that go through our minds.
