Elephant for Glasgow — Sculpture Saturday

Hi all 😁 My entry for Chasingamemory’s Sculpture Saturday.

Elephant for Glasgow was crafted in 2015 and came about when Kenny Hunter worked in partnership with House for an Art Lover; the result was a life-size elephant cast in part from recycled, redundant or scrap parts of locomotives. These were sourced from engines in India and South Africa that were originally built in Glasgow. This sculpture has been installed on the site of the 1938 British Empire Exhibition in Bellahouston Park.

And just to show the size of the sculpture…
