As a Christmas gift, that extraordinary painting has just been hanged on my wall, created by a gifted person. More poetic vision than other wild or folk ones. Hopefully, the first but not last, rare treasured art in my life.
Indian folk-art inspires independent artists, with myriad ideas of its realisations. Primary Oji-Cree twisted dual spiderweb design hung on the one loop where both net-knotted threads secured each other in their fulfilled role - a common hanging tool or a tiny necklace/amulet.
Hard to deny the impression of experiencing a lot - the book is subjective, but accurate, written by an bystander and ethologist at once, concluded/illustrated with real examples coming from personal observations of wolves, witnessed by someone fascinated with their social nature.
Polish lore and culture are permanently attached to the forest with its wolf, lynx and brown bear as main predatory carnivores. Alfred Wierusz-Kowalski (1849-1915), born in Poland, mostly painted genre scenes featuring people, hunting dogs, horses and especially wolf as a leitmotif .
Winter is coming. In the Subcarpathian suburb it means a deer or a hare flitting suddenly on the horizon or just crossing your path on the run. It's a time of bird feeding and wild animal marks on the snow. Hopefully to hear a wolf's howl somewhere far away.
More or less intentionally Until Dawn becomes another publication supporting a positive image of the wolf as an animal, canidae and carnivore.
