Elephant Fever, the only cure ? Another dose!

January 23rd 2013 Julie and I collected the elephant I built for the Auckland Zoo 21 years ago, in 1992.

We were met by helpful Zoo staff who assisted with lifting the elephant sculpture, which is in 2 pieces, on to our roof rack and trailer ready for our 300 km homeward journey.

Outside the northern gates of the Auckland Zoo.

Julie and our precious load.

Harmen and his elephant

I'm relievd that the young man who made this thought about future moves during design and construction.

This is definitely her better side. The other is cut away to reveal the internal anatomy of an elephant. I plan to cover that area up and integrate her back into a fully formed pachyderm.
This is how she originally appeared when finished. That's me at age 34 on the left.
