10/28/2004: Elephant sculpture



English artist Anthony Heywood was inspired to create this for Australia's Bondi Beach "Sculptures by the Sea"... after watching TV footage of elephants being killed. We've had a few elephant killings on IotD, here and here.

(Mr. Heywood is unwrapping the work, the wrap is not a part of it.)

Well of course! He doesn't want the thing to spoil.

I had two thoughts. The first one ocurred to me before I clicked on the link, and that thought was "How in the world do elephants hold the hammer and chisel?!", but then I reasoned that they could be working in some other medium, perhaps clay or bronze.

The second thought was after I looked at the picture, and that thought was "Wow...that's pretty damn cool."

Yep- I wouln't have wanted the job of removing all the bugs post transit. The plastic wrap was the most brilliant idea of the whole sculpture, in my opinion.
Maybe I should try to purchase this work to place in my foyer. I wonder what they will do with it after the exibit?
I think it would make a very nice artificial reef.

I'd like to see the rest of the "Sculptures by the Sea". Leah is going Sunday, maybe she'll take some pictures for us.



Leah  Thursday Oct 28 06:49 PM

I LOVE IT, I LOVE IT I'm going to see this exhibition at Bondi Beach on Sunday. The exhibition only opened yesterday. Can't wait. No sleep in for me on Sunday, my boyfriend and I will be there early for a spot of breakfast. I'll even get a photo of the elephant sculpture so watch out Bruce . No where near as good as the real things, but fun nonetheless.



Leah  Thursday Oct 28 06:51 PM

Bruce, you just beat me by the hair of my chin.



Leah  Friday Oct 29 12:50 AM

By the way, I think that's my old dish rack from 1995.



xoxoxoBruce  Friday Oct 29 01:12 AM

There’s something about a “spot of breakfast” that stirs my imagination.
Hmmm....so does the hair on your chin.
Have fun...take lots of pictures......send them.



mmmBoy  Friday Oct 29 12:04 PM

Do the TV's work? He should loop the footage that inspired the work.



Elspode  Friday Oct 29 12:33 PM

That would be treading into Nam June Paik's territory.

I've seen your foyer. I',m sure it would't fit. However, I think the artificial reef is more practical. Maybe the fish would see themselves in the many t.v. screens available on this exhibit and say wow. what a wondrful piece of art? I',m better looking than I thought!!!!!!!!!!
