Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing
Joan Bohlig Copperplate Etching 1974
Beware of false prophets, who come to you in sheep’s clothing but inwardly are ravenous wolves. (Matthew 7:15)
Bohlig playfully visualizes Jesus’ parable by placing a sheep’s pelt atop a wolf parading in daylight with his tongue flapping, ready for the kill. Wild grapes and prickly ash thorn bushes encircle the wolf.
