This is so stunning, I'm going to have to save up to have tons of these around the house....

I don't know what the weasel and marten totems would represent, but the Siberian weasel (or kolonok, as I prefer to call it) is midway between them in terms of size and hunting behaviour. Perhaps a kolonok totem would be good for someone undecided between having a mustela or martes totem.

I don't actually subscribe to a belief that people *choose* their totems, so I don't know if I'd be comfortable including a totem meaning like that (though it is an interesting one). I do however have a list of keywords here for Siberian Weasel as Totem: [link]

May not be able to afford the awesome trio of weasel, polecat and pine marten at the moment... but they have a place in my heart ^.^ amazing work as always!

Gee, this is a great series - I think this one is my favorite, though, the pose just seems to add to the design and personality of the animal.

Thank you so much. I love this one too. I think it's the least 'striking,' but that seems to really fit the Siberian weasel. They have such amazing colour in real life.
