Beware of surreal cyclists!

I spotted this rather surreal sculpture outside the sculpture park at Goodwood some time before Christmas. The light that day was very flat and the sky was very grey so I made a mental note to come back when the weather was better. The sky was a lovely shade of blue this afternoon so I took a trip up to Goodwood armed with my camera and polarising filter to see if the sculpture was still there. I’m not quite sure what to make of this – I can’t decided whether it’s supposed to be an elephant that’s been swallowed by its own trunk or some sort of species so far unknown to mankind – all suggestions gratefully received!
GKorts swallow the clouds would be possible as well, perhaps a bit more optimistic than Marjories idea

revenant Yes, those cunning, devious bastards never know when to stop - especially the ones on tricycles.

I have three words to say to anyone who dares disagree: "respect my authorit-I!"

revenant No, honestly, I suspect the sculptor's been watching too many South Park episodes.

revenant A badly rendered Cartman or a mutated headless elephant on a trike? You be the judge.

Ryana My guess, a bombardon is come to life.

lookagain Haha...love this one, very interesting shot! Question. Does it scare small children? ;)))

SheriJ I am amazed there is a tricycle big enough for the dear creature! I think it's head forgot to grow? Strange for sure.

Wasichseh LOL, fantastic, could be a figure of "The Neverending Story".

danrav Helen, it's not an elephant, its a dinosaur. It is a trumpet-suraus. As a musician, you should have known that! Distant relative to a record-a-saurus! Pshaw!

darfoster What a great find! Such a funny sculpture and captures so well!
