Erymanthian Boar - Original


Hand-drawn pen and ink illustration inspired by the Erymanthian Boar from Greek mythology.

The wild boar, “a monster sent by the gods to ravage the vineyards—which are the epitome of the ‘civilized’ place—is experienced as the eruption of savagery into the human world, as the manifestation of a natural disorder encroaching relentlessly on the social order. Thus the boar is a heroic symbol, but also the expression of a distance, an insurmountable difference. The image of the boar combines the two planes of war and hunting, by inscribing itself in the space of savage nature.” - Yves Bonnefoy & Wendy Doniger
