Watch a Howling Wolf Get Speed-Sculpted Out of Clay

Arooooooo!

If you’ve been in the mood to scream at the moon lately, perhaps this time-lapse video of a howling wolf emerging from a blob of clay will provide some catharsis. Or at least offer a bit of creative inspiration for a weekend project.

The seven-hour sculpting process—depicted here in under four minutes—begins with a wire frame and ends with a carefully detailed animal carved out of oil-based clay. Artist WieselRobot, an Austrian sculptor’s apprentice, has also carved howling wolves out of wood.
