21st Annual Smithsonian Magazine Photo Contest Artistic
Big and Intimidating

A sculpture of an Elephant at the entrance of McCarthy Beach, Delta state, Nigeria. The elephant is the biggest mammal animal in the world. I refer to the elephant as the king of the forest because with its intimidating size even the lion can't come close. What I found fascinating about this statue is how the elephant truck was used as a source of fountain to wash the body.
