A portrait of a cougar, with an illuminated planet behind.

As in many of Erickson's recent quilts, the cougar is marked with images that reference neolithic cave paintings. She explains: "In the mid 1990s, I worked on quilted pieces that showed bears in caverns or in rooms formerly occupied by humans and covered with cave drawings of early animals. The bears wander through these environments, teaching their cubs about history. In this quilt, the ancient history is imprinted on the animal itself, who moves freely on the wall."
