Picture of the Day: The Wolves are Here

I took a visiting relative to the 798 Art District today. And as we wandered around, we stumbled upon this exciting outdoor art.

It was a giant pack of wolves surrounding a man standing on a stone with a spear ready to defend himself.

It's a sculpture by artist Liu Ruowang and it's appropriately titled, "Lang Lai Le!" or "The wolves are here!"

Each of the fearsome animals looks different, but quite Chinese from the swirls of fur on their backs.

Of all the art we saw today, this one definitely provokes the imagination.
