Tansi! Welcome to Downtown

Here is the official viewpoint site for the Bateman Wolf Mural. It is the best location to see all 10 stories of the Mural. Read the interesting story of the mural and the artist at this display site.

Bateman’s message for “€œWolf Sketch”€ is one of eye to eye with respect… “Wolves perhaps feel that eye to eye staring would be almost confrontational. Perhaps this is why we find the direct gaze of a wolf so compelling. The drawing was executed on rough paper to give a feeling of the rough power of a wild wolf.
