Elephant Head

This vintage Elephant Head fell off a wall, and the 40-inch trunk and tusks broke off revealing the sculpture’s dry-rotted insides. When the owner discovered Jeff’s studio, which was previously in Chicago, he packed up all the pieces and drove from Florida to Chicago to commission the repair.
