Studio Nituniyo Creates a Large Elephant Sculpture Made of Recycled Cardboard Tubes

Designed by Spanish studio Nituniyo, a collective comprised of Carlos, Eva, Jesus and Empar, for the annual Fallas Festival in Valencia, Spain, this large size public sculpture was assembled from 6,000 recycled cardboard tubes, which are stacked to form a cell pattern in the shape of an elephant. The sculpture which was created to be interactive allowed passersby to write wishes and dreams on pieces of colored paper and insert them into the hollow cardboard tubes. Just before the climax of the festival, on the night of march 19th, the sculpture was burned in a special ceremony.
