Wolf 25 of 30:
Often neglected, the origin and history of Wolverhampton is a fascinating subject. Marie and Neil’s design is based on the intricate relief work found on the early English cross shaft in St Peter’s Gardens.
Prior to Latin text, our Anglo-Saxon forbears wrote in runic and we have included a selection of these striking futhorc runes on our wolf. Founded in what is known as the ‘dark ages’, the luminous colours of the wolf correlates with Wolverhampton’s motto – ‘Out Of Darkness Cometh Light’.
Marie and Neil hope to ignite the imaginations of Wulfrunians and visitors alike, promoting research into the origins of our city.
