BGC Museum Exhibit: Picturing the Parables

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.
