Werewolf marks are nothing if not cultured, thus you should enjoy perusing this collection of werewolf artwork from the Middle Ages and the Renaissance. Now while in the interest of honesty I cannot guarantee that all these works are authentic—some of them might be modern-day creations fashioned to look like they are centuries old—they’re all still plenty cool. Most of them are, though, I would wager, the real deal. What is it about the passage of time that lends a patina of badass-ness to works of Art?
The artwork from the travelogue from Marco Polo is genuine, I know. I came across it some time ago when I was doing research for my novel THE CONFESSIONS OF SAINT CHRISTOPHER: WEREWOLF, which I am releasing in installments right here on this website and some of you, at least, seem to be enjoying.
The woodcuts I know are authentic, and I can vouch for most of the depictions of the Beast of Gevaudon. The one I selected to accompany this article, though, I had never seen before. Is it centuries old? Maybe. But it’s rad, either way. I really dig the spines down its back, and the depiction of its limbs make it look more bipedal.
