Pressed Rat and Warthog, located in Unit G of the Twisted Cow Compound, at 931 Shoofly Street, Santa Fe, New Mexico, provides artifacts that: enhance meditation; aid in the performance of sympathetic magic; establish a connection to subtle beings; and/or open doorways to alternate realities.  

The business is named after a song written by Ginger Baker and Mike Taylor of the band Cream, recorded in 1968 on their ‘Wheels of Fire’ album.

The picture below depicts the moment described in this verse: “Sadly they left telling no-one goodbye, Pressed Rat wore red Jodhpurs, Warthog a striped tie, between them they carried a three-legged sack, went straight round the corner and never came back.”

  "Any material image of a religious idea is an idol; a material object in which force is supposed to be concentrated is a Fetish; a material object, or a class of material objects, plants, or animals, which is regarded by man with superstitious respect, and between whom and man there is supposed to exist an invisible but effective force, is a Totem." [J. Fitzgerald Lee, "The Greater Exodus," London, 1903]
