Elephant Rock, Iceland

The Elephant Rock is a natural rock formation on the Westman Islands archipelago, located approximately 7.4 kilometres off Iceland’s South Coast.

The rock is elephantine enough that some people think that it must have been shaped with human intervention. That is not the case, however. The elephant’s realistic appearance is, at least partially, due to the fact that the cliff consists of basalt rock. The rock gives the figure “skin” that looks wrinkled and grayish, just like a real elephant.
