GUR Handmade Rug

I have been possessed by the wolf. It used to be a symbol of fear and the representative of the wilderness. Something that people were afraid of. Today, the wolf is a symbol of healthy nature, and the return of this creature is a good sign! A new approach and mentality towards nature is needed. We must find ways to change the stigma surrounding the wolf and understand that the earth we live on, beyond our towns and cities, is wilderness. In this day and age, we live in a massive gap between wilderness and nature. We do not understand the earth and go on destroying it. If we allow the wilderness back in, in this case, the wolf, we must find ways to work together. These will not be easy, but they will be essential! From that cooperation, new worldviews will emerge, and the wilderness will be able to help us. Give and take, this tapestry is a reminder of that! Hence, the somewhat friendly character of the wolf.
