Surreal Elephant

Item #ABL239

Size: x 64in H. x 35in L.

This surreal bronze walking elephant statue was inspired from the paintings, prints and sculptures of Salvador Dali.  The mighty elephant, widely regarded as a symbol of strength and power, is contrasted in this sculptural work of art with spindly legs creating the idea of weightlessness with structure.  The elephant carries an obelisk on his back.  This surreal creature would make a creative addition to your home or office.

The iconic long-legged elephant first appeared in Salvador Dali’s work in a 1944 painting entitled “Dream Caused by the Flight of a Bee Around a Pomegranate a Second Before Awakening.”  The elephant would next appear in his famous 1946 painting “The Temptation of St. Anthony.”    In this painting four elephants carry symbolic objects representing temptation.  One elephant is carrying an obelisk which would be later be known as the Space Elephant.

We can weld stainless steel mounting brackets under each foot so that you can permanently secure it.  This bronze surreal elephant is cast in the ‘lost wax’ process and hand finished in a custom patina coloring.

  • Maintenance

    Bronze lasts forever and will never rust, warp or contort. It is an alloy (a mixture of metals) and will oxidize over the years. This process will not hurt the statue. In fact, it can enhance the beauty by turning the statue many wonderful shades of greens, blues, whites and yellows.
