A gift to the city of Portland from Chinese businessman Huo Baozhu, whose China-based foundy manufactured the sculpture, these bronze elephants is actually about sixteen times larger than the original, a wine pitcher from the late Shang Dynasty. The young elephant standing on his father's back symbolizes safe and prosperous offspring. Titlaed "Da Tung & Xi'an Bao Bao", it is roughly translated as "Universal Peace & Baby Elephant". This sculpture is located in Portland's North Park Blocks.
