Make your ownCapitoline Wolf

The image of a she-wolf suckling Romulus and Remus has been the symbol of the city of Rome since antiquity.

According to legend, when Numitor, king of Alba Longa and grandfather of the twins, was deposed by his brother, the boys were thrown into the river Tiber. They were rescued by a she-wolf. She fed them and kept them safe until they were found by a shepherd and his wife, Faustilus and Acca Laurentia, who adopted them.
When he became a man, Romulus founded the city of Rome on one of the seven hills along the river Tiber.
The most famous sculpture of the wolf and the children can be found on another of those hills, the Capitoline Hill.

This paper sculpture is easy to put together.
1 wolf, 1 envelope and a partly blank card.

No scissors or glue needed.

Size when built:  3 x 12 x 5 cm.
