The reddish color of copper has a strong evocative power, that bring to mind the hot African landscapes, first among all Tsavo East Park, in Kenya, with its limestone and clay earth. In order to protect themselves from parasitic the elephants roll on the ground taking the fiery pigment. Hence the reference to antibacterial properties of copper, which inhibits the proliferation of bacteria on its surface, reducing the number of germs that may transmit through contact. The stylized animal body consists of three satin sheets copper, white lacquer internally, allowing LED to spread into the environment.
