Elephant Made Out Of 6000 Recycled Cardboard Tubes

The creative crew Nituniyo (Spanish creative agency) built this elephant sculpture out of 6000 recycled cardboard tubes for the Fallas Festival in Valencia (Spain).

Over the duration of the festival, the sculpture slowly transformed from a cardboard brown into a colorful elephant with the participants writing down their dreams on colorful pieces of paper and slipping them into the tubes.

At the end of the festival and as per tradition, the sculpture was set on fire and burned to the ground.

A nice interactive sculpture!
