Smithsonian Elephant



 

I am currently working on a model of the Fenykovi elephant located in the Smithsonian Museum of Natural History, Washington.  It is the largest ever recorded elephant standing 13.2 feet tall and took 16 months to complete, being put on display in 1959.  This is one of the best examples of elephant taxidermy in any museum.
