May 18 Mystery PhotoNo one correctly identified the object in the mystery photo in our May 18-31 issue, although several people guessed the image was that of a lobo sculpture on the UNM campus.

In fact, the image was a close-up of the face of “Sparky,” a bronze dog sculpted by artist Glenna Goodacre and installed in 2004 at the Albuquerque Museum. Sparky made news in February when thieves stole the 100-pound sculpture and sold it for scrap. A scrap dealer who bought the dog returned it to authorities, and Sparky is now back in his place in the museum’s sculpture garden.
