The Fragile Giant
The smallest man-made object ever to be filmed (as of November 2015).
The Fragile Giant on a human fingerprint
Why the fragile giant?
Originally sponsored by Chugai Pharmaceuticals, this project shines a light on the fragility of the world's elephant population.
We have come so far! We can place a microscopic elephant between the grooves of a human fingerprint, but we don't seem able to save the species from our own hands..
This elephant sculpture is just over on tenth of a millimetre high. It is walking along the stark and perilous landscape of a human fingerprint. It can be destroyed by a human breath.
