Perfect placement...for an awful piece. Sorry, I just don't care for these elephants. And yes...his tail is way too long.
I thought his tail was too thick ... but I agree it's a good setting.
I think he should have stuck with the Hare,the elephants I've seen don't look like this one.Ann
I should think it's more difficult to work with elephants than hares ~ hares lend themselves to stylisation I would have thought.
There seems to be a sense of motion within the piece ... I have to admit I rather like it.
Barry Flanagan's elephants do have their fans but I have always preferred hares to just about every other animal ~ real or sculpted.
Great positioning, bloody awful sculpture. I just don't like his elephants. The hares are generally much better.
You might feel better after seeing the next one Mitch.
I agree, the tail is way too thick for a tail - but maybe it is like that to get the audience wondering whether that elephant is coming, or going? :)
It looks as though the elephant has an anteater hanging out of its bottom to my way of thinking.
That would have been one heckuva lunch! lol
Nice setting, still I think he was doing way better with his hares.
I think you're right Diane. Still, I don't suppose he could spend his the whole of his life sculpting hares.
