The Source for Contemporary Art Quilts, Exhibitions & Appraisals


This work, one of Nancy Erickson's many studies of human and wild animal interaction, also includes a volcano, which is not shown.

As in many of her recent quilts, both the wolf and the woman are marked with images of animals 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 wolf and human, both of whom are freed of caves and rooms, and move freely on the wall."
