VIZArt :: Tungsten (Periodic Table Printmaking Project)

I love the heavy look of the woodcut print paired with the severity of the wolf's expression and the very clever application to the periodic element, Tungsten. "Tungsten (Swedish tung sten meaning "heavy stone"), though the current name for the element in Swedish is "wolfram", from the denomination volf rahm by Wallerius in 1747, translated from the description by Agricola in 1546 as Lupi spuma, meaning "wolf's froth" after the way tin is eaten up like a wolf after sheep in the process of its extraction."
