A child’s first haircut is a memorable milestone, and the occasion is no different for the gray wolf, a rock art formation incorporated into the Dunlevie Garden at the new Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford opening in December 2017. Recently the wolf received a trim for the very first time. Swipe to see the haircut in progress.

Hidden within the landscape, the gray wolf is one of many animals showcased on the new hospital property that are representative of the California ecosystem. Desert dinosaurs, a banana slug, and three bear cubs are just some of the animals converging at a central meeting place. 
Created by concept designer, Michael Green, the wolf rock formation won’t be missed by astute children exploring the more than 3.5 acre expanse of green space and gardens that are designed to reflect the unique beauty of Northern California.
Recently artist Solomon Bassoff was on site to oversee the installation of the cement Hadrosaur and Baby sculpture he created that will be housed on the third floor of the new Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford. The Hadrosaur is the only known dinosaur to have lived in California, and this Hadrosaur duo is the first to sport bunny slippers. The Hadrosaurs are one of the many wayfinding sculptures used to help patients and visitors navigate through the new hospital opening in December 2017.  Photos courtesy of Faducci.
