Photographer's Note

After my last two postings of two single elephant sculptures I proudly present this group of three. They were placed at the "Simeonstiftplatz", a lesser frequented place where is also a bus stop.

Otto Waalkes, a well known German comedian and artist has painted the elephant sculpture in the left foreground. Of course it is named Ottifant albeit the sculptures shape is different to Otto's standard Ottifant design.

Further away in the center we see Timberella by Armin Bohn. You have to view it from a distance to get a picture. If you come closer you will see that the sculpture's glossy skin consists of 13.000 stamps. Each single stamp had a working live on a letter or a postcard.

To the right with his back to us sits Frolandofant, the clown who brings some color in our life i.e. the photo as it is the intention of Roland Grundheber, the artist.

And ... at the far right ... there is just a simple man waiting for the bus.

Editing Note: The wall in the background showed a lot of lens distortion, so I squeezed the picture until the wall was straight. It looked much better and had little influence on the elephants appearance. As always at such places I had to paint over some litter on the ground. And then there was a scratch in the trunk of "Ottifant" which I had to repair.
