Elephant statue vandalized…

Bernini’s elephant statue in Rome  was vandalized  last Sunday night, with the tip of one tuck being broken off.   It was commissioned by a Pope in the mid-1600’s,  and though it sits in a small square off the main tourist paths,  it draws a number of visitors who appreciate its uniqueness as a part of Italy’s cultural heritage.
