Elephant of the Day #62


Title: Ridderelefanten (Translation: The Knight Elephant)
Artist: The Prince Consort of Denmark, Prince Henrik
Location: Rosenborg Castle (July only, as this will be a wandering elephant - a new month, a new location)

The elephant order is the highest order in our little kingdom, and the decoration of this elephant is inspired by this order. The artist is also the patron of our city's version of the Elephant Parade.

The location the elephant had in July seems very appropriate, as it was looking at the entrance to Rosenborg Castle, where the Danish crown jewels are kept. Almost looks like this elephant is guarding the castle.

A perfect location for this one. Does it have little jewels on it, or are those painted on?

The little jewels are made of glass or perhaps clear plastic :o)

I really like the clean look of this one. And yes, the location does seem fitting for such a regal animal.
