#?, Elephant Parade Antwerp 2008 (Willemdok, Antwerpen)


Flanders-inside-sept2008-elephantparade-3

Kunst op dierenbeelden die geveild worden voor een goed doel is niet zo uitzonderlijk als ik dacht.  Blogvrienden vermelden : ijsberen in Canada, bizons in Utah (USA), walvissen in British Columbia (Canada), stieren in Schotland, leeuwen en pinguïns in Tel Aviv (Israël), koeien in Nederland en in Texas (USA) en in vele andere landen, in Nederland ook olifanten, paarden in België.  En wolven in Raleigh (North Carolina, USA).

Art on animal statues auctioned for a good purpose is not as exceptional as I thought.  Blog friends mention : polar bears in Canada, buffalos in Utah (USA), whales in British Columbia (Canada), bulls in Scotland, lions and penguins in Tel Aviv (Israel), cows in the Netherlands and in Texas (USA) and in many other countries, in the Netherlands also elephants, horses in Belgium.  And wolfs in Raleigh (North Carolina, USA).

I love this elephant. We had Bears and some of them were really cool. We have Ice Sculptures in the Winter that you'd really like.

En de olifantenhemel is nu in Antwerpen. Het levert wel speciale beelden op.

Ik zag ook koeien in Polen (Warschau), maar ik weet niet of die geveild werden. (In Nederland trouwens ook niet.)

You can add my hometown of Raleigh, NC to the list. Back in 2000 or 2001 there was a collection of wolf statues (NC State University's sports teams are the Wolfpack) decorated by various groups and later auctioned off. You can still see some of them around town. I may have some photos of some of them somewhere, I'll have to check.
