Katharina Fritsch “Elephant”

Sculpture - Polyester, Wood, Paint (381 x 419 x 160 cm) 1987

“Elephant” is a life-size sculpture made in 1987 on the model of a stuffed animal.

This polyester elephant painted in grey-green, whose wrinkles and folds of skin are surprisingly realistic, is an elderly and dignified animal surrounded by mirrors that present it from different angles.

Perhaps an image of the matriarchy is naturally exercised by these experienced and wise elephants who remember the routes to follow to guide their flock on their migration to distant feeding points.
