Elephant Shaped Watering Can

Grey plastic watering can in the shape of an elephant with googly eyes and a trunk shaped spout. Traditionally watering cans were made of clay and then metals such as steel or copper. The invention of plastic in the 20th century has lead to a great variety of designs which are lighter than their metal counterparts. This malleable material also allows for fun and creative designs such as this can which was made in Holland.
