The Wolf (the wolves) is a predatory mammal of canine family. It is the ancestor of the domestic dog that is usually regarded as a subspecies of wolf.

Paintings with Wolves. Wolf is the largest animal in the family of wolves. Body length of the wolf (with a tail) - 105-160 cm, height at withers- 60-85 cm, weight - 30-70 kg. Dimensions are exposed to strong geographical variability: northern specimens are larger, southern are smaller. Males are always larger than females, with more foreheaded head.

Paintings with Wolves. The general appearance of wolf resembles a large sharp-eared dog. The legs of a wolf are high, strong, paw is larger and more elongated than dog’s one, trace length is about 15 cm and width 7 cm, two middle fingers are pulled out forward that allows distinguishing traces of the wolf from the dog ones. Bullheaded head, muzzle is strongly elongated and is framed by "whiskers" on both sides. Wolf’s muzzle is very expressive. Scientists account more than 10 wolves’ mimic expressions: anger, rage, humility, kindness, joy, caution, danger, calm, fear. The tail is long, thick, and in contrast to the dog’s one is always pushed down; the hunters call it as a "log of wood". Wolf's tail is an expressive "language" of the wolf. It is possible to guess the mood of the wolf (is it calm or afraid) and its status in the pack on position of the wolf’s tail and its movement.

Pictures with wolves. Wolves’ fur is thick and quite long. There are significant differences in color of wolves’ subspecies. Forest Wolves are gray and brown. Tundra Wolves are fair, almost white. Desert Wolves are gray and red. In the highlands of Central Asia the wolves’ coloring is bright-ocherous. In addition, there are pure white, red or almost black specimen. The wolf cubs’ coloring is monochrome, dark, lighter with age.


Paintings of wolves. Wolf has always attracted the attention of a man. There are many various legends and fairy tales written.

Wolves. Paintings of the wolf. Myths about wolves. Warrior people admired the power and agility of the wolves. Some Gallic warriors decorated their helmets with wolves’ heads, which were symbols of strength and courage.

The legend about the Nibelungs tells about how German warriors fried meat of wolf, ate it and in such a way, they wanted to inherit the features of this animal. In Scandinavian mythology, where warrior virtues are extolled, wolves have a special place: they attract man as well as inspire fear to him. When the God of war and wisdom Odin holds council of the Gods, two big submissive wolves are lying at his feet. Odin conquered them and they are symbolizing his power. On the opposite, the giant wolf Fenrir stays wild and unappeasable, being the embodiment of the frenzy, wildness and destruction.

Wolves. Paintings of the wolves. Myths about wolves. The God of war, Mars, who sent the she-wolf to help twins Romulus and Remus and thus blessed the founding of Rome, becomes the patron of the city. Mars originally was the God of nature and youth. Every year in a month that is named after him, residents of Rome neighboring cities arranged celebrations in honor of Mars, and thanked him for his help in the renewal of nature. During these holidays of "the spring blessing" young people were elected and they were destined to seek their fortune in the foreign lands. They left their city and the other two beings, associated with the God Mars – a green woodpecker and a wolf, were pointing out their way. Spring was the season when the warriors left their winter settlements and started new war campaigns. Mars and the wolf were patrons of the entire belligerents - in civilian clothes and military uniform. By the way, the wolf, along with a horse, an eagle and a wild boar was one of the emblems of the Roman Legion.

Wolves. Paintings of the wolves. Myths about wolves. Wolves were always and at all times associated with wars. In the XV century the order of knighthood was founded and it was called the Order of the Wolf. Since the Middle Ages up to the early modern times residents of Brewer in Picardy, who organized fighting detachments to protect the freedom and independence of their commune, proudly called themselves as "wolves of Brewer." Finally, in present time, German soldiers who occupied France during World War II, were repeatedly compared to wolves.

Painting The Wolf. The art. Art depiction of the wolf. Like all the night beasts, wolves have always been surrounded by halo of mystery and, as it is paradoxical, often directly related to the cult of light or the sun. Perhaps, the reason for that is the burning wolf‘s eyes, capable to glow in the darkness. The first conquerors of Egypt claimed that they were led by the wolf- God, who later became the patron of the city Siuta that was named by Greeks as Liko polis (city of the wolf.). This God, Upuat, whose name in Egyptian means "the one who opens the roads" later became a helmsman of a solar ship in the night time.

In ancient Greek the word "wolf" and "light" were very close. For example, when the name of the god Apollo was added with word "Likeyskie" it could mean "the God of light," and "the God exterminating wolves."

Painting The wolf. Wolves and superstition. It was considered as witchcraft to conquer wolves and make them to obey. In the villages people believed in men able to impose their will on these predators, that were considered invincible. These people were called "leaders of wolves." People were afraid to bother them for fear, as if they could send their flock into the sheepfold! These "leaders", who lived mostly on the outskirts, were mainly coal miners or shepherds, alone and unsociable. In Zhevodane many believed that a terrible beast that devastated the whole region in XVIII century, obeyed Antoine Chastel, a strange and dangerous man; or at least Chastel was familiar to that wolf. In XIX century the writer George Sand heard in her native land, Berry, the story about wolves’ ringleaders told by so serious-minded people that she did not know what to think!

Painting The wolf. Wolves and superstition. In fact, wolves are predators and they differ from with an independent nature, hardly endure bondage and they are difficult to train. The circus wolves were involved in combat performances (set against bears), but then this bloody spectacle was, fortunately, prohibited.

Painting The wolf. Wolves and superstition. Concerning werewolves, they were causing far greater fear than real wolves. According to legend these were people doomed to scour at night in the forests with a wolf’s appearance. It was believed that this curse applied to criminals serving the Devil. To cure them, people had to force them to confess the crime and wound them with a consecrated bullet. This belief about turning people into wolves was spread not only among the people, even till the XVII century church representatives and scientists believed it was possible. Unfortunately, there were also people suffering from a special kind of insanity, called "lycanthropy" or "wolf’s insanity": they were attacked with hallucinations, primarily caused by hunger; they took themselves as wolves and suffered from attacks of rage, dangerous to others. So bizarre intertwining of fiction and reality gave the origin to the legends.

Painting The wolves. Wolf hunting. Aristocrats and kings had only the right to hunt a big game in the old days. When wolves appeared, the peasants turned to their lord with a request to arrange a raid, but if they undertook that themselves, they were in penal servitude.

Painting The wolves. Wolf hunting. Wolf hunting was often neglected, preferring a wildfowl, which was regarded as a noble, such as deer. That has resulted in many patrimonies when wolves were in abundance, despite frequent complaints of peasants, who, without any weapon, every day were suffering the wolves. In 1520 Francis I created special officer corps that was engaged in hunting wolves. Hunts were chosen from among the nobles, who owned a pack of dogs, trained to hunt wolves. They arranged raids, put the traps. County residents paid them taxes for each dead wolf.

Painting The wolves. Wolf hunting. In 1789 the monopoly of the hunt was canceled. Political events and revolutionary wars quickly chill out the eagerness of new wolves’ hunters. Then the government began to find ways to encourage the extermination of wolves that have breed throughout France. They have decided to use a system of reward for every wolf’s head.

Painting The wolves. Wolf hunting. That system, which still exists, has accelerated the extermination of wolves. That is how the British totally exterminated wolves on their island in XIII century.

Wolf. Pictures with wolves. Although wolves have practically disappeared out of our territories, Hunts still exist: by their own admission, today they would rather prefer to defend some survivors of this species of fauna from people. The poor animals! In Western Europe they have become captives of close spaces bounded by the cities and highways, victims of fear they inspire, and this fear modern humans have inherited from their ancestors.

Once wolves appear they are persecuted cruelly. At a time when wolves still have wide opened territories in Spain or Yugoslavia, in the outskirts of Rome they turned into a real "homeless" that find their meager food in the trashes, so numerous on the outskirts of the city. Their brothers in America and Siberia inhabit vast areas with abundant wildfowl, but there are people involved in the trade of furs, sometimes chasing them with helicopters.

Wolf. Pictures with wolves. Meanwhile, realizing that wolves are playing an important role in the balance of forces in nature because they eat weak and sick animals, people have tried to rescue the wolves. Wolves are not responsible for the evil they were accused in: they have almost entirely disappeared, but rage – has not!

Wolf. Pictures with wolves. People unsuccessfully tried to breed the wolves in the forests of Land in France, causing heavy damage to deer that have bred there. But for some reason wolves preferred to attack sheep and birds: the shepherds at the first opportunity were taking their guns... In contrast, experiments carried out in the Massif Central, received great approval of population, despite the memories of the Beast from Gevaudan. There are some organizations protecting wolves in the United States and Canada. Watching the wolves’ living, wildly in their natural environment, people have finally learned to respect and understand these animals.
