"Dreams of Tigers, Dreams of Sheep"

20" x 24"
woodcut, oil based inks on Masa paper
Edition of 6

Children have nightmares,
Great boogeymen come in the night,
Carry away boys and girls and
Eat them.
Images of sharp teeth and claws,
Hairy hides over lean muscles
Drawn from the well of humanity's past
A time when us as prey was a
Legitimate fear.
So many generations later
They have become "Cleo," "Tigger," "Max."
Their food from a can.
Their fur, soft and combed.
Their fate in our hands.

  1. Gorgeous print! The patterns and colors are stunning and the expressions on the baby and the animals faces are magical. I want one.
