Dutch Dolmen: D54 Havelte-O, Hungry Wolf
“D54 Havelte-O, Hungry Wolf” gives a look at a Dutch dolmen. In addition, in the distance we see a schematic representation of what may have been a contemporary of the builders. He flees from a wolf. This wolf is closer and runs away from us after its prey. In fact, this image is not realistic. Wolves are hardly found in the Netherlands and they don’t attack people. With the apparently slow return of the wolf to the Netherlands there is some fear with regard to cattle. Fortunately, there are many Dutch people who, after 150 years of absence, welcome the wolf back to their country and strive for understanding and love for this beautiful animal.
The Netherlands have just over fifty dolmens. They are all – except one – in the province of Drenthe. D54 Havelte-O is the highest in numbering. It lies close to D53 Havelte-W in a hilly landscape that took its shape in the ice age. The two prehistoric buildings are a bit out of direction compared to other dolmens. The ride to it is nevertheless very worthwhile. The nature around the Havelterberg is beautiful, as are the burial mounds that you can find there.
Technique of Dutch Dolmen: D54 Havelte-O, Hungry Wolf
I keep several wallpaper books in my workspace. I like the material to work on, especially with acrylic paint. The paint stays on top of it and with a bit of luck the patterns shine through very nicely. That does not apply to this work, since I chose this piece of wallpaper for its beautiful structure and color. But they also come through beautifully. Acrylic paint on wallpaper, 24 x 32 centimeters.
