This is a contemporary sculpture based on the Pictish rock-art carving known as The “Ardross Pictish wolf” stone was found in 1890 in a field dyke near to Ardross in Ross-shire. Sculpted in the 6th or 7th century.
the wolf design is thought to be associated with the territory of a family or clan. The pack behaviour of dogs and wolves was likely viewed as analogous to human tribes. The Picts also used the wolf as emblematic of courage, loyalty, and honour.
This sculpture is closely based on the original incised stone but using artistic licence I have depicted the wolf in relief. The colours are inspired by the cloth printing work of Marianna Lines of Stoneline Designs and are used with her blessing.
It is believed that when an animal was carved into stone that it was to capture and embody the spirit and virtues in order that they be passed to the possessor of the carving.
This sculpture represents the same and serves as a connection to these powers and virtues, bringing you the spirit of the wolf
