Gustave Doré's engraving "The Wolves and The Sheep" from around 1867 is a powerful illustration that conveys a sense of dread and impending doom. It depicts a flock of sheep in a state of panic, with some trying to escape and others frozen in fear. Above them on a wooden ledge, a group of wolves with glowing eyes observe the flock, exuding a sense of malice and predation. The scene is set at night, with the full moon casting a ghostly light over the turbulent scene, enhancing the overall menacing and terrifying mood of the artwork. Doré's use of contrast between the innocence of the sheep and the cunning of the wolves, set against the backdrop of the natural elements, creates a chilling narrative that captures the viewer's attention.
