The Diliman Jungle

broken concrete animals When these concrete animals appeared in front of a house in our neighborhood back in 1974, all the children—me included—were absolutely delighted. None of us thought they were kitschy at all. Almost 40 years later, they're still around, but the elephant has lost its trunk, the horse has a damaged tummy, and the lion's mane has started falling off. The poor things.

An elephant looks very strange without a trunk.
It would have been fun to play on those animals when we were kids. But I suppose that was not allowed?

I wonder what possessed the homeowners to put up those animals. They're cute.
