#451 “Pride Rock”

From Melissa in Hixson, Tennessee

I know, I know… “Pride Rock” is a Lion King reference and has nothing to do with wolves whatsoever. Still, I couldn’t help seeing that inspiring seat of power when I took in this poignant illustration by Melissa. There’s something heartwarming but also haunting about the two young creatures playing joyously atop a rock precipice while their watchful parent looks on with what I can only suspect is a calm but firm sense of pride and virility. As the sun sinks low in the background, the sky is washed with a frenzied rainbow of color, and above it all the wolves stand silhouetted in black- a constant fixture, firm on the rock of natural wonder while the world turns madly on… A masterpiece if there ever was one…
