The Elephant Celebes

2d: Max Ernst | 3d: Kacy Despres

I loved the dark whimsy of this piece. The mammoth, clanking metal elephant, looking like Tim Burton's version of Dumbo, in stark contrast to the pale naked bust created such an intense energy in the piece. The dark, brooding sky and landscape lent an almost ominous feel to the piece. I chose to isolate the actual bust from Ernst's work, as some things just can't be done justice with the build tools of Second Life.
