A Parade of Elephants in Spitalfields
It is hard, almost impossible, to find traces of wildlife in a bustling city like London. And the chances of seeing a herd of elephant prance and play around is next to none. So, when the first few elephant bronze sculptures popped up at Old Spitalfields it was especially pleasing to the eye. The herd of elephants eventually grew to twenty-one and included twenty baby elephants and one adult female elephant- the matriarch. The beautiful life-like sculptures created by the extremely talented internationally acclaimed artists Gillie and Marc (
