Space Elephant (Salvadore Dali)
A Lego rendition of Salvadores famous painting 'Elephant on Stilts'.
About this creation
I have this Lego Elephant and was wondering what to do with him. Here is the answer :-)

Dali produced several paintings portraying Elephants on Stilts (Space Elephants) http://www.thedailytelecraft.com/2011/05/salvador-dalis-elephants.html.

This Lego elephant is a copy of a statue that was made in honour of this famous artist for Londons Southbank Dali exhibition http://www.flickr.com/photos/jo92/2377692069/

I think he looks great, what do you reckon?

kind of surreal, it s cool to know the origin of the concept, I have an elephant too! I tought of a funny gag with it, I don t know much about dali, seen paints, or pics, is all, as a man of function, art abstrait, [abstract?] does nt apeal to me much, so, I can t fully appreciate, but, it s looking good, and very original!

Nice job on this one, it's always hard to find a good use for those things ! I think it would have been better with cones at the end of the legs, but overall it's a good MOC. It makes me think of a completely weird version of the movie War Of The Worlds, too ;)

Fantastic! When I read the headline something like "lego elefant forgotten on the hot stove and quickly taken away" went through my head since I know the painting - but this is awesome as well ;-) Very creative!

Very clever use of this rare and odd piece. I just got one of these elephants in the mail through bricklink for a zoo MOC that I am planning.

Just like what Nick said, a Surrealist Elephant in LEGO. This is probably the most original use of the elephant I have ever seen! Great job DeTomaso! - KP

Haha, a cool idea! I've been at the Dalí Museum in Figueres and I'd say there must have been a lot of strange things in Mr. Dalí's head! ;-)) I love a great part of his work but I had a big impression of a person on the edge between genius and madness... Anyway, a great idea and a really cool model! :-))
