Here are some more elephants for you (especially you, Wendy). The sculptures are life-sized fibreglass likenesses of Melbourne Zoo's elephant calf, Mali.
Look at his elephant slippers! Melbourne Central, near the Shot Tower
Beside St Paul's Cathedral
Also at St Paul's
While I was taking a photo of this one, a woman asked me to take a photo of her and her two grandsons with the elephant. Of course I obliged. Then I saw them at every other Mali afterwards, and took a photo of them at each one!
They had seen 23 of the 50 sculptures today. You can see a list of all of them and the artists who've decorated them here. One has even been painted by Mali himself! It's titled 'self portrait'. Teehee.
Wooly Mali by Mini Goss, also at Fed Square
Yes, it's a knitted full-body elephant suit!
He looks happy
Birrarung Marr, near Art Play. This one was painted
by one of Melbourne living treasures, Mirka Mora
