The mini Elephant Herd

The mini herd were all designed by schools and I  believe were all returned to the school that designed them.

My favourite was Betty Buttons, so called because she had buttons all over which made it very colourful and an interesting texture.

Lizzie provided comprehensive information about the original Lizzie that inspired the elephant theme.

It was endearing to see the elephants with children’s handprinuts, drawings or writing about their hobbies.

During 2017 I would like to visit Hull.

I would like to search for the moths to honour Hull’s female aviator Amy Johnson. Hopefully searching for moths is as much fun as hunting elephants.

3. Inside out. The full impact did not immediately hit me as I saw her during a session running round the city zapping elephants on the app. It was the second time that I noticed and admired the baby elephant inside the Mother to be that my appreciation grew for Inside Out.

2. Inconelly I could see this one from a distance as I approached Fargste, shining in the sun. Given his conienent location, he has receive do several oats from me, when I have been passing. I have also had some fun trying to take pictures in the reflection.

It was interesting to learn about the material he is made from; inconel which, is made by Sheffield company Pressure Technologies. Apparently this super alloy of chromium and iron is very hard wearing so I would be happy to have him in my garden sparking for years to come. Where is he now?

1. Another one that was in a convient place for me to visit often over summer was Interst Elephant. As soon I saw him, I was drawn to him because of his bright colours. Up close there was features to see all over; from the different rockets blasting off, either side of the trunk to the stars, space ships all over his body and legs. The earth was centeral on his body with a rocket 🚀  above and an astronaught space walking out of the rocket.
