  • Posted 29 months ago by Jack Lowe · Art & Design · 22398 Views
  • Since 2008, French artist Daniel Firman has been exhibiting various versions of a sculptural installation piece named Nasutamanus all over the world. The artwork always depicts an elephant balancing on its trunk, sometimes out from the wall and at other times up from the floor. Most recently, the sculpture was on view at the Kunsthalle Wien in Vienna early in 2012. You can find more of Firman's work here.
