While exploring murals in South Wabash, I came across a small park, with unsual sculptures: three wolves against a wall, of which one is reading a book with a raven overlooking its shoulders. Nearby there’s a creepy hooded figure, under a table. And there are some spherical rocks on the ground. Very interesting I thought.

The best story behind these wolves, I found in an article in Atlas Obscura.. click here..
An excerpt..
The sculpture was created in the early 1990s by Ellen Nesvick, in association with Columbia College. It’s based on an illustration called “Legends Rustiques,” drawn by Baron Dudevant Jean Francois Maurice Sand in 1858.
