Another pink elephant

Dubbed Ella, this statue was acquired by 21 Brix Winery in Portland, NY, way back in 2011, and placed at the entrance to the parking lot on Highway 20 to make it easier for customers to find the place.  

She was originally grey, and the plan was to paint her a different hue every few months.  Before she became pink she was yellow, to match the winery’s grape harvester.

In 2012, however, the winery launched a pink catawba wine and ran a naming contest for it on Facebook.  “Ellatawba” was the winner. 

Ella went in for a paint job, came out pink, and has been pink ever since!
