Toronto Through My Lens

Tembo, Mother of Elephants

Elephants in downtown Toronto!

These bronze elephants, created by artist Derrick Stephan Hudson in 2002, are located in the Commerce Court Courtyard on the south side of King Street West. The work is entitled Tembo, Mother of Elephants.

The three elephants reflect the strength and loyalty of a mother for her children. The massive mother elephant stands solidly guarding her youngsters, providing protection and care. Weighing almost as much as 80 people or 6 automobiles, this enormous mother elephant is one of the largest bronze elephants in the world.
