99 wolves crash into glass

From the "cool art" dep't:
It's 99 life-sized wolves, made over a period of six months out of sheepskin, straw, and other such materials. They crash into a thick pane of glass and tumble in confusion onto the floor. The lead animals are the ones crashing, but clearly the pack is headed for the smackdown as well.
It's called "Head On", one part of a three-part installation by Chinese contemporary artist Cai Guo-Qiang, made as a commissioned piece for the Deutsche Bank Collection in Berlin.
