Elephant No. 5: Rome

I rather liked this statue in Rome, though you can’t quite see all the details in this photo, and my camera started playing tricks with blue lines (atmospheric??). It’s a fab combinations of Christian at the top (a cross), Egyptian in the middle (for the obelisk) and (arguably) Carthaginian and Hannibal-esque at the bottom (the elephant).

Rome, July 2011.
