± 2 weeeks per sphere..

The spheres are a serie of six, that show the different social situations of the elephants. Information of the ZOO, and the keepers of the animals played a key-role in making these models. This resulted in a serie of own pictures and drawings based on observations of the Asian elephants at the Rotterdam ZOO
