Depicting the Circle Hunt

@ VOL 3 ON SEP 28, 2013

Artist Carrie Walker is inspired by historical circle hunts - in which hunters would form a circle around a large portion of land and slowly close in, killing every animal they came across. Carrie found rich imagery in descriptions of these events, and had a desire to depict the now forgotten animals. She embarks on a road trip to recreate scenes which she skillfully translates onto paper.
