Is the human a wolf? Is the wolf more human?
Facing current ecosystem issues, we, as jewelry art creators, want to question and point out how we perceive and experience this situation.
Should humans take responsibility for the planet, nature, animals, our children, ourselves, and strangers who might turn into allies after all?

Man is its own Wolf. Viewed from the angle of Drugs. The wolf in this analogy would be the one to distribute those substances, but at the same time the person, which, led by addiction, is bound to fall.
As an example how drugs could be used in moderation is showcased by the fly agaric, and therefore all ’magic mushrooms’.

In contrast to the English philosopher: Thomas Hobbes, who justifies his call for an all-powerful, totalitarian state with the ancient Roman proverb: "Man is a wolf to man" (Leviathan, 1651), I agree with animal ethicist Mark Rolands, who concludes in his work "The Philosopher and the Wolf" that it would do man good to shed some of his manipulative, ape-like qualities in favor of more truthful, wolf-like qualities. Above all, to pretend, to fake - to wear masks.
Thus, this work asks the following questions:
What remains, when our masks fall ?

It's an enameled copper ring that presents a snake, that's cut in multiple pieces.
