Mystic figures like "monkey boys", "wolf girls", or "gazelle boys" for example are all part of the lore of wild children. Those feral children have grown up with little or no human contact, and they are therefore unaware of human social behavior or language.
All over the world, all though history the stories about those cases are secretive and fascinating.
T.C. Boyle wrote in one of his last books about the story of Victor of Aveyron in France, 1799. And even the well known 200 year old drama of Kaspar Hauser is deeply interesting me. So again by way of trial I started some illustrations.
