The Inspiration:

"God made the wild animals according to their kinds... And God saw that it was good."

~Genesis 1:25

"Then one of the elders said to me, "Do not weep! See, the Lion of the tribe of Judah, the Root of David, has triumphed."

~Revelation 5:5

“He'll be coming and going" he had said. "One day you'll see him and another you won't. He doesn't like being tied down--and of course he has other countries to attend to. It's quite all right. He'll often drop in. Only you mustn't press him. He's wild, you know. Not like a tame lion.” 
― C.S. LewisThe Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe
“Safe?” said Mr. Beaver; “don’t you hear what Mrs. Beaver tells you? Who said anything about safe? ‘Course he isn’t safe. But he’s good. He’s the King, I tell you.” 
― C.S. LewisThe Lion, the Witch, and the Wardrobe

The Story Behind the Art: 

I have a WILD child. 
Several, actually... but one in particular has wild pumping through her veins to a beat that is other-worldly. 
From infancy she has been fierce and fearless -- a tornado wearing a tutu. I promise you, we thought the movie The Croods crafted their little cave-baby character after her. 
She tries to free-climb pillars in grocery stores. The only volume she has is roar
Here eyes light up with excitement at deep water, fast rides, ridiculous heights, and unknown creatures and experiences. 
She is wildly beautiful. And daily reminds me of this side of Jesus that I've forgotten because I live such a padded, air-conditioned life. 
He is the Creator of lots of wild. He loves and values wild. He is wild. 
Wild is wonderful -- and so welcome here.
