Inspiration at the Art Museum

Last week, my wife and I visited the Hickory Museum of Art. It's not the Smithsonian by any stretch of the imagination, but for a small town like Hickory, it's really nice. I've been there several times before, but a lot of the art exhibits rotate (as art museums typically do), so with each new visit there is at least something I've never seen before.

This time, I got a little creeped out when I walked by a glass door in a part of the museum that usually doesn't change much: the folk art gallery. In a side room, behind a door but still visible because of the glass, stands this statue:

At first glance, I thought it was one of those models of all the organs in the human body that they have in anatomy classes sometimes. Look a little closer, though, and you'll see it's actually made up of various animals...

This just screams "DRUID SPELL!" to me... or maybe some kind of nature guardian... any ideas? Is this just a Druidic Voltron?
