I picked up a friend at Cape Town International Airport today, which is where I found this life-size bronze elephant. The beast was created under the direction of Jean Doyle and the Doyle Art Foundry, with the help of a fellow sculptor. The project took a full 2 years to complete. Donations from the public can be put in the tree stump collections box for the Out of Africa Children’s fund. The elephant is not a permanent fixture : it will be auctioned at the end of the year and the funds raised will also go to charity.
