Bullet Elephant

This is a "political/enivornmental" scultpture located at the Detroit Zoo. It's purpose is to make us aware how many elephants are poached for their ivory and the possible fate of elephants if this is not curtailed.

I am leaving today, shortly, for Jackson Michigan and then California. I will probably be unable to access a computer while I am away so my next post will be maybe Tuesday September 4. Have a good week.

Mary, This is a powerful image. At first I felt repelled by the bullets, but it makes sense.

Hope you're going to have yourself a nice little vacation!

Marie said...

Very powerful image, en effet. Terrible.

Erin said...

This is quite striking indeed.

Thank you Kate, Marie and Erin for your thoughtful comments. I just saw this again on Sunday and it really is heart-rending to think about.
