Cecilia Ferri

These are some of the illustrations from Italian illustrator Cecilia Ferri's book Lupus in Fabula a book of self discovery and learning to be true to yourself and move away from the constraints of the pack.

"In Lupus in Fabula, everyone has their own role, is trapped in a mask, to fulfill the expectations of others, adapting to the group, everything goes in line with expectations of the environment in which he lives, stuck in routines between home and school, feeling the social weight on the shoulders.This is symbolically represented as a mask that hides the true nature of the protagonist, a mask that is closing in on the face of his companions, that behave all the same way.The wolf embodies a double role of wild beast bringer of destruction, and at the same time initiator and bearer of knowledge.Today the wolf has a complex symbology. Is not the bad shadow that follows us in the woods, is something that we carry inside as hidden brother.It's our inner-self that reminds us that despite the social and economic superstructure built around us, we are still a product of nature, and the anxiety that we feel is the memory further and further away of our origins, we continue to stubbornly forget." Cecilia Ferri
