The Details

Name: Elefont

Location: Neptune Marina, Ipswich Waterfront

Sponsor: Neptune Marina Ltd

Artist: Claudia Myatt

Design Inspiration

This sculpture is a celebration of the history and development of Ipswich Waterfront with a design that is intended to be engaging to all ages. Elefont is an illustrated alphabet with a letter, upper and lower case, in each of the Elmer patches. Each letter features Ipswich waterfront and docks, for example ‘C for Customs House’, ‘B for barge’, ‘O for Orwell’ – and ‘E for elephant’ of course! The letters are around the body, numbers on the legs and punctuation around the edges.
