Dog / Wolf from the Tamed series enchants with the dual tale of playful companionship and untamed spirit.
This visual ambigram invites exploration from both sides, offering two distinct yet interconnected worlds.

In the upper scene, a dachshund takes a leisurely stroll through vibrant city streets, basking in the warmth of the sun. Urban life sprawls with houses, street cafes adorned with classical canopies, and charmingly arranged tables and chairs, as if inviting patrons to enjoy a leisurely lunch. A passing car adds a touch of urban rhythm, while leafy trees cast refreshing shadows. The scene is punctuated by a bustling pedestrian crossing, capturing the dynamic essence of city life.

Flipping to the other side unveils a captivating contrast—a wild wolf navigating through tall grass, surrounded by the majesty of towering trees. Beyond, expansive fields and meadows extend into a wild landscape, invoking the untamed beauty of nature. In the starlit night sky, silhouetted branches and birds dance solely against an expansive full moon.

Our exclusive “stetching” technique seamlessly merges traditional stitching with modern sketching, creating a lifelike and intricate portrayal. The monochrome elegance achieved through white fabric and a single strand of black floss imparts a timeless quality, reminiscent of classic graphic art.
