Da Tung & Xi'an Bao Bao, Shang Dynasty replica (2002, bronze). by 

The young elephant standing peacefully on his father’s back symbolizes safe and propserous offspring. A replica of a wine pitcher form the late Shang Dynasty (circa 1200-1100 BC) this scultpure is about sixten times larger than the original. The elaborate surface decoration features cloud-shaped curves and birds and animals from ancient Chinese mythodology. Da Tun may be translated as “universal peace” or “large bronze.” Xi’an Bao Bao means “baby elephant.”

I took this image just as the street lamps were turning on, hence the reflection of blue sky with a red glow.
