#172 - Luna - Artists M McCann, J Scott & N Colyer - This elephant definitely seems like a boy to me - black and sophisticated, twinkling with loads of different lights all over him. Very fitting for this particular upmarket surrounding.
This elephant consists of hundreds of fibre optic lights. Artists Inspiration: "We wanted to highlight the plight of the Asian elephant in a unique & striking way." Luna was sponsored by 9web.
#56 - love ellie - no doubting the gender of this particular elephant! Most definitely a girl, unless you can have an elephant in drag! Artist is Andrew Logan. You should see the bling and the twinkly toenails!
I was taking photos inside the shopping centre - especially of this amazing ceiling - when a security guard approached me, and asked me very definitely to stop! Wow - the world's gone mad.
Very very space age - beautiful, futuristic and quite blancmange like in this photo, I think!
Back downstairs, and near the children's playcentre, is elephant #97 - Saffron. Poor thing! It is very closely encaged - I don't understand why. Children are crawling all over the elephants in the parks around London - but here the barrier is up for reasons unknown. Artist Ellen Stewart. The Elephant is the cheese, and there are mice all over Saffron! So cute, and what a clever design.
#224 - Eli - Artist Sandra Sashou. Eli has been decorated with newspaper articles about elephants. There are also paint streaks, and then it has been varnished over the top. Eli is sitting at the food court on the first floor gallery. The scale of this place is quite astonishing.
