This colorful mural depicting two wolves, one black and one white, was painted by Julie Davis as part of Indy Arts Fest, an event in which six muralists paint a mural live, in 2021. The muralists were given the opportunity to raise money for a nonprofit of their choice with their murals, Davis’s choice being Fur the Brand, an organization dedicated to fighting canine cancer. The mural was purchased by Axia TP.
The mural is inspired by a Native American parable about how each person has two wolves fighting inside of them, a negative and positive one, and that the one who will win is “the one you feed.”
