The opening quote, about the ivy tod being heavy with snow and the owlet whooping to a wolf below that eats the she wolf's young, has always seemed a bit ambiguous.  The opening scene involves David making noises with the pan pipes.  Is this like the owl whooping to the wolfe, number five, who will one day kill another wolfe as his own father has consumed his free life and taken the life of his originator? The only other mention of an owl is when maitre in VRT is called an owl.  There are forty seven pan pipes and later the prisoner forty seven taps on the pipes to communicate with VRT.  He is a political prisoner.

Does the wolf eat the young of its mother in the quote?  (Number four and five et al continually consuming each other- they are wolfes) the quote is certainly not referring to the owl as the consumer of wolves, right?
