Balancing Elephant

I hope I’ll be someday able to see the balancing elephant by French artist Daniel Firman up close. Stunning.

  1. You just missed one! There was a balancing elephant sculpture by another artist (Miquel Barcelo) in Union Square from fall 2011 through spring 2012. My Modern Met featured it here (http://www.mymodernmet.com/profiles/blogs/amazing-gravity-defying-elephant-in-union-square) and I walked by it frequently on my way to work. It was very cool!

    I can only imagine how stunning a sculpture like this would look in a gallery or museum, as you have illustrated above.

  2. there’s used to be one next to Mies’s Barcelona Pavilion as well! i think it’s the same sculpture mentioned in Katie’s comment – maybe it was just moved.

  3. There was one in Epernay, France at the Pommery house.
    April 2012.

  4. Jajja I wa going to say the one of barcelo which has been in Madrid

  5. This is definitely so amazing to see what this artist was able to do with this elephant here. I have never seen anything like it before. Just amazing work here. Ontario Travel
