Nick Mackman – Call of the Wild – Tongue Curled


The howl of the wolf is deeply embedded in human myth and culture. Its haunting lament touches a primeval fear passed down to us from our ancestors who once shared ancient forests with these formidable beasts. The ritual symbolism is no less significant for the wolves themselves. Howling promotes bonding and unity, announces their presence and defines their territory. Pups learn to howl from just a few weeks old. It’s an instinctive response for them. An initiation into the pack. Today, of course, humans have nothing to fear from wolves. It’s we who threaten them through population pressure, habitat loss, and ignorance. As an artist, Nick strives to promote awareness and understanding of her subjects. ‘Call of the Wild’ celebrates the ritual of the wolf howl, the grace and dignity of these magnificent animals, and the deep cultural connection we share with them.
