A surreal tribal line art styled wolf spirit. The wolf has held an honored place in many mythologies, folklore and religions throughout human history and across many cultures. Wolves were and are creatures to be respected, feared, and admired. For these animals, the extended family unit or pack is the center of their lives. Wolves show great nurturing and gentle care for one another, while also displaying vicious ferocity and cunning on their hunts, in competition with one another, and in the defense of territory and their pack. They are animals of great intelligence and physical prowess.
Wolves traditionally have been considered symbols of power and the embodiment of both protection and destruction. These connotations have earned wolves a place as mythological archetypes representing the hunter and the warrior.
