This Elephant Sculpture was Made from 6,000 Recycled Cardboard Tubes

Spanish design studio Nituniyo created this amazing elephant sculpture using only recycled cardboard tubes. The cardboard elephant was created for the annual Falla Castielfabib Festival.

The interactive display welcomed guests to look and touch the sculpture -- an art piece that doubled as a secret-keeper. Guests were encouraged to write their wishes and dreams on a piece of paper and stick them into the hollow tubes. Each cardboard tube was filled with a brightly colored sheet of paper that contained a viewer's intimate thoughts.

As part of the festival each sculpture is burned in public. While cardboard is a sight to see when fire has been set to it, this act allowed the viewers to feel more connected as they watched their thoughts become ash.Photo Credits: demilked, designboom
