Iconic Alpha Wolf Outer BoxA Highly Detailed, Original Work of Art by Wildlife Artist Maurade Baynton!
The image by Canadian wildlife artist Maurade Baynton features a striking portrait of a lone wolf (Canis lupus) rendered in striking detail through expert engraving and full color, which affords us a unique close-up view of the wolf’s characteristics. Here, our fearless hunter is perched on a rocky slope and holds its steely gaze as it surveys its remote territory and the horizon beyond the image field. The application of selective coloring allows the viewer to glimpse the wolf’s fine features and its handsomely hued fur that allows this fearless carnivore to blend in with its surroundings. Behind the wolf, a mountain range looms over the river that winds through the forest valley below, with tall timbers that only add to the majesty of this natural setting.

The Grey Wolf
It's a true thrill to wildlife lovers when they catch a glimpse of the mythic wolf in the wild! Although they were held in high esteem for eons by Native Americans because of their spirits, wolves have been eradicated throughout most their range in North America, partly by hunters for trophies, and partly by ranchers as pests. However, wolves have been making a comeback recently and have been reintroduced to several locations, including national parks. Wolves play an important role by preying on big game animals and helping to control their population, including eliminating aged and diseased animals. Though they hunt in packs, wolves do not view humans as prey.

Wolf The largest member of the canine family, the Grey Wolf varies in color from grizzled gray or black to pure white. This animal tends to live, travel and hunt in a pack, which usually includes the alpha mother and father, their pups and several younger animals. Grey Wolves develop close relationships and strong social bonds. They often demonstrate deep affection for other members of their pack, and may even sacrifice themselves to protect the family unit!
