Here are some installation photos as Akbar’s Elephant moved into the Fox Tower in Portland, Oregon.

Here is the gantry crane assembled and about to be moved into position. In the background you can see parts of the sculpture. Photo by Lee Kelly.

Flying in the last part.
Welding it back together. The installation took less than five hours thanks to the detail-oriented genius of Jim Schmidt (on ladder) who managed the whole gig. Photo by Lee Kelly.
