22 الفيل فيل
For some time my younger brother has expressed a wish for an 'elephant'sculpture.
So, while he was in Turkey for a holiday his wish was fulfilled, الفيل فيل is the result.
This is a Persian elephant named Elephant Fil, revealed from inside a pebble found in Turkey. Fil is the Turkish word for Elephant, الفيل فيل is Arabic for 'Elephant Fil'.
Discovered in a fairly nondescript marble pebble the final polishing revealed some interesting marble colors.
