A giant rock that looks like an elephant, in Saudi Arabia

Not that it’s a perfect enlarged-scale sculpture of an elephant. It is about using a little imagination to allow us a pareidolia (psychological phenomenon by which we perceive a recognizable shape in a random object or image). In this case, it would be a gigantic rock “elephant” in a place in the north of Saudi Arabiavery close to the ruins of the city of Al-Ula.
