The Wolf Wave is Coming for You

Seeing one wolf leaping through the air is scary enough, but dozens of them? Holy crap. But hang on, what’s with this picture? It looks like someone just went totally nuts on the Photoshop clone tool or something. Is this some sort of CGI werewolf animation test for a movie?

It’s actually an art installation in the Guggenheim Museum called “Head On”, created by a Chinese artist named Cai Guo-Qiang. He says of the piece, “The bravery of the wolves is met head on by the unyielding wall. As the leading wolves go down, many more follow with force and determination.” Feel free to project whatever group of people you want onto that.

Each of the super-realistic wolves (of which there are exactly 99) is a hand-made replica, not taxidermy. So, basically, he’s got 99 wolves and a bitch literally ain’t one (because they’re all synthetic).
