ELEPHANTS - SALVADOR DALI

ELEPHANTS - SALVADOR DALI

Created by CircaNICA, Australia's leading school for professional circus performers. The elephants are mesmerising as they gently wander around on their amazingly long legs, thoroughly investigating the crowd and their surrounds.

Melbourne, VIC, Australia

The Elephants were designed in the image of Salvador Dali’s elephants, for the opening of the Dali Exhibition at the National Gallery of Victoria.  The elephants are mesmerizing as they defy gravity, gently wandering around on their long spindly legs.

The elephants always intrigue, with their gentle nature and interractive curiosity.

Heights : Elephants are 3.5 meters tall.

“Tall Poppies were extremely professional to deal with and were a major highlight at this year’s Viva Victoria festival. Watching the gorgeous elephants move through the crowds at Federation Square added a fantastic element to the festival.”
