Bill Woodrow, Elephant, 1984
"Woodrow has commented: ‘The head, mounted colonial fashion on the wall, was constructed around an ironing board because of its triangular shape and strong frame. I used the ear shape of some old wall maps of Africa and South America… The fact that they are third world continents soon became the point of the work. I thought of jungles, deserts, shanty towns, natural forces, technology, tribes, revolutions¿ This finally produced an elephant lifting an automatic weapon from a water hole, with the car doors I had found at a breaker”s yard forming its banks.’"
