"Memorable Statue of an Elephant"

This is a colorful statue of an elephant that has stood at various locations in San Antonio for the last 90 years, and has been the backdrop of generations of family photos. It was first created in 1930s by artist Julian Sandoval and for several years it has added to the beauty of mansions, been a circus memorabilia or placed in museums for display. Over the decades the statue was exposed to a lot of damage due to weather or manhandling by countless children climbing onto the statue for pictures. At the start of the 21st century the statue was repaired and restored to its original glory with a pair of new tusks and a fresh coat of paint. It was officially given the name Cinnamon Kandy and its new home is in front of the Research and Collections Center.
