The inspiration behind Vulpecula is the National Space Centre. The artist wanted to show gratitude and appreciation to the NSC and Leicester; the only city in Europe with a dedicated space centre. They wanted this fox to reflect the importance of exploration, the dedication of the human race to go where no other being has been before and to inspire future generations to learn more about space.
