William Blake TarotThe piping boy in leggings and wolf skins represents the primal feelings, outwardly wild and fierce, but inwardly innocent, tamed by love's lyrical power. The starkness of the 'ice-built mountains' and the primitiveness of the animal skin's 'shaggy form' emphasize the preciousness of the boy's humanity and the sweetness of his private tune -- he is a 'sheep in wolf's clothing'. Obviously oblivious to his surroundings, he communes deeply with an inner muse. No matter how barren his environment, or how crude and unkempt his raiment, his songs are intuitive expressions of his feelings, and personal communications from his dreams and subconscious mind.
