My guess is that the critter on the scroll is a coyote — after looking at Comparing Wolves and Coyotes (from the California Wolf Center). Whatever it is, it sets off the galvanized mailbox.
The photo is from May 27th, 2013.

Though I usually don't show saguaro-shaped mailboxes, this one is worth an exception! Gregg Townsend spotted it along the route for Cyclovia on April 6th.
The “arms” are covered with... spark plugs. A search with Bing tells that, naturally enough, you'd take your vehicle here for service. The business is Arizona Radiator and Muffler Service.
Thanks for the prickly art, folks. And thanks too, Gregg, for taking the time to get off of your bike and snap some photos!

This green mailbox isn't especially interesting by itself, but it shows a way that some people avoid going outside (in this case, by the green mesh gate) to get the mail. Though I didn't actually check it, boxes like this usually have a second door inside the wall.
I snapped the photo on June 12th. You can also see it — with a lot of other “flat” art — on the Tucson Murals Project blog. (It's in today's April 18 entry.)
