They are very cute - they look like baby elephants! What do they have in their trunks?

(And, do they each get their own golf cart?)

That is cute as can be. Did you show us that horse in the background in a previous post?

They are adorable!

Awww! That is so sweet! And I was just looking at baby animal pics in NGS earlier this afternoon.

I love this. I want it. do you think you could just ship in on out here. Those little elephants are wonderful. they look so happy!!! But what do they have in their trunks? MB

I know--always with the questions!

That would go well with my GOP post, LOL. I dont usually vote Republican, but the county I live in has maybe 3 Democrats that hold office and running only two candidates in the upcoming election. If you want a say you have to vote R. All incumbent Rs have primary opponents, which made the forum interesting. I also think when voting for judges they pick the party in power. If the Dems was the majority party they all would be Dems.

Wonderful sculpture, wonderful shot.

What an awesome water fountain! Did you turn off the water to the elephant trunks, Jacob?!

Jacob said...

@ Small City - I wondered about that, too. Looks like spears, but I think they may represent snakes?

Rose said...

They are great! I like that horse in the background also.

VP said...

Awesome fountain, their pose is so natural and funny. The statue of the horse in background looks like a real one passing by...

Jarart said...

I love this! What a great fountain. I don't think I've ever seen a fountain featuring elephants before. I see the horse that you posted a while back too!

bfarr said...

This is the cutest fountain installation. I love it.

They are adorable, so cute of them..reminds me of the Dumbo movie and the storybook which I loved so much as a kid.

Oh my God, do you think we could have them on loan in Versailles? They are soooo cute!!!

JM said...

They look pretty cool! Are this lotus blossoms they are holding?
I think I recognize the horse in the background, right? :-)

Cezar and Léia said...

What are they up to? Looks like they're excited looking for adventures (or trouble...)!
God bless you!

They are so cute! Do they spray water?

Jacob said...

@ Susie - I think so, but I've never been there when they've done so.

@ JM - Could be lotus blossoms ... and yes, that horse was a featured post a while back.

If Brown takes out Coakley in Mass. Tuesday, the elephants will indeed have something to frolic about!
;-)

What a fun fountain. Elephants with their trunks up bring good luck.
Cheers.

@ la Vache - That would be the beginning of the end of the world as we know it...we just can't survive with any more elephants in Congress...

They've driven us into this deep black hole and then try to blame Obama for not turning everything around in 12 months!

Jacob said...

@ Blossom Flower Girl - I didn't know that. I have heard that you should have an elephant pointing toward your door - that brings good luck!

Heh, heh!

Hahaha!

How cute!

You knew I had to comment on the elephants once I got out of work mode. Such a cool fountain. I was going to ask about the "pikes" they're carrying, but I've just read they may be lotus. That's a nicer image! This is wonderful!
