Elephant Balancing on the Tip of Its Trunk

You can find this amusing sculpture by Miquel Barceló in Union Square in New York City. It stands 26 feet tall and weighs 7 tons. Why an elephant, let alone one in this position? The artist explained, "A tree looks like an upside-down elephant, and when you touch a tree, it feels like the skin of an elephant."
