Wolf hunting magic. Wolf warrior with shield and companions by Dorothy Graden

I visited a gulch on a private ranch in central Montana this past summer and there were a lot of pictographs (painted images) on the walls. Each image was finely detailed, with headdresses, weapons, foot decor and other accoutrements. It was an amazing place and had been occupied for hundreds of years. This wolf image was inspired by the site. You can see power images in the work: Bear claws, weapons. The large body shield protects the wearer from arrows and unseen dangers.
