Renowned for his monumental sculpture created primarily for open-air public spaces, Hans Van de Bovenkamp has been described as an artist-mystic whose work, with its signature power, lyricism, and grand proportions, heightens the viewer's sense of fantasy, imagination, and discovery. Here it is not difficult to recognize his joy in and appreciation of animals while at the same time giving life and strength to the power and mass of a real elephant.
