The Elephant in the Garden

The Elephant in the Garden

A giant African elephant lurks in the shrubbery of the United Nations sculpture garden. The 11-foot tall, 7,000-pound bronze sculpture was a gift from Kenya, Namibia and Nepal to the UN and was created by a Bulgarian sculptor known as Mihail by casting a tranquilized wild elephant on a Kenyan ranch.
