To Melanie: For important info on Jimenez's "Howl," look at the catalog
"Man on Fire--Luis Jimenez" for a 1994 exhibition at The Albuquerque
Museum. Jimenez is quoted as saying that the image of a coyote stayed
with him after completing a watercolor of a dead coyote but that the
"Howl" sculpture went beyond the portrayal of a coyote/dog. He began
doing lots of studies of the endangered Mexican wolf, the wolf native to
New Mexico, and then did the sculpture of the "Howl."
