There's another statue of a mammoth in the Ciutadella park in Barcelona, claimed to be true to life.
To give an idea of its size: Tourists that want to be photographed while sitting on its trunk actually have to climb on it, i.e. the lower part of the trunk is about the same height as a man's waist.
A plaquette explains that the statue was made in 1907 for educational purposes. The Ciutadella park houses a Zoo and a Natural Sciences museum.
Its eye is the size of a dove.
