An exhibition of bronze wolf statues performing the Nazi salute was unveiled in the German city of Chemnitz on Thursday, shortly after the Saxony city had been shaken by a wave of violent incidents.

Created by artist Rainer Opolka and titled ‘The Wolves Are Back?,’ the travelling exhibition features 10 large, aggressive-looking bronze wolves, many of them doing the salute that typified the German Nazi party during the Third Reich. Some of the statues are also blindfolded.
