The Hunted


Title - "The Hunted"


Edition Seven.


The quote of Inspiration for creating this artwork:

"Do not go where the path may lead, go instead where there is no path and leave a trail." -Ralph Waldo Emerson


Different species of deer, as well as wholly mythical versions, played their part in different folklore of the wild deer. In northern Europe the reoccurring theme of the deer as animal of the hunt, and specifically the chase, revolved around the red deer as depicted in this artwork. These animals, especially the antlered stags, were large, alert and swift beasts against which royalty and aristocracy could pit their wits. Laws and taboos denied the common folk access to this bounty during that time.


Even so we are all familiar with mediaeval outlaws like Robin Hood who risked severe punishments for the taste of venison. The word venison originally applied to the meat of any of the wild animals of the chase. The word is derived via the French, from the Latin ‘venari’ meaning ‘to hunt’.


When antlers were not kept as a hunting trophy people carved this hard material to make early weapons, tools, jewellery and buttons. It continues to be used to make handles for anything from hunting knives to walking sticks.


Today many deer are widely hunted around the globe, mainly to control the numbers of population to preserve vegitatation in nature.
