About Roaring Elephant
This piece serves as a unique comparison with the Alice in Wonderland series. It was sculpted by Colorado artist Dan Ostermiller and is based on a fable about an elephant and a mouse. The sculpture indicates Ostermiller’s concern with presenting animals in motion, preserving their essence in a natural environment.
