Be Like Bamboo

by Gilly Beal

Bamboo is known for its strength, and it can be seen all over Hong Kong supporting the construction of new buildings. But in its natural state, it is flexible, and will bend with the wind. The elephant “Be like bamboo” reflects this duality, and has been created by artist Gilly Beal to communicate Hong Kong’s ability to thrive. Using natural materials such as palm fronds and seeds as brushes, and Chinese ink as her medium, Gilly has created a bamboo grove across the body of the elephant. A red bauhinia, Hong Kong’s national flower, adorns the elephant’s head.
