Elephant Love

Picked it up in a CT Goodwill for $ 1.00.  I suppose it was cheap because of the missing trunk… but I am in love with the “pig snout” that it became.  Perhaps the top is not an elephant at all but but a giant pig with elephantine ears.  They also have glowing plastic gold eyes.

I just realized that the snout holes were probably the result of knick-knack “ivory” poaching.

It’s important to see from all angles.  A thing of beauty.  Evil eyes.  Poor Ms. Jumbo.

    The only thing that could make this better is if you tell me it’s wood-look plastic as opposed to real wood.

    When I first looked at this I didn’t question for a second that it was a giant pig mounting a smaller elephant. Fate surely stepped in to determine at what precise point the ivory poaching was going to occur as it broke at am almost perfect pig-nose length.

    I also really like how the elephant who’s being mounted’s trunk protrudes all the way to the ground and is used to steady the ol’ gal for more balanced insertion.

    More submissions please!
