The werewolf (Old English: werwulf, man-wolf) or occasionally lycanthrope ) - a man who turns into a wolf, is a widespread concept in European folklore.
The persecution of werewolves and the associated folklore is an integral part of the witch-hunt phenomenon, albeit a marginal one, accusations of lycanthropy being involved in only a small fraction of witchcraft trials. During the early period, accusations of lycanthropy (transformation into a wolf) were mixed with accusations of wolf-riding or wolf-charming.
Werewolves inspired a lot of authors and artists to create beautiful books, paintings, designs, movies? This one is done in my style, it?s a wolf howling at the moon, but with a human skull. There is lukanthropos written in Greek alphabet on the bottom, just because I think Greek alphabet looks nice. I love horror and folklore, so I wanted to make it look grim, dark and macabre, as always.
