The elephant in the room saying just got a little more hiperrealistic. French artist Daniel Firman has been exhibiting this amazing installation piece named Nasutamanus all over the world. This life-size elephant balancing on its trunk is made of Fiberglas and polymer and has been seen balancing in in all sorts of galleries and even palaces. Incredible.
They say Daniel Firman‘s sculptures are somewhere between dancing and falling. The artist collaborated with a taxidermist to ensure powerful visual impact of the piece, which measures 7.2 feet x 17.3 feet x 44 inches. But there’s more to it than beauty. The creature has been connected to walls or floors displaying what an elephant can do at 18 000 Km from earth gravity.
