Yao Ming, the giant with a giant heart.
Elephants are my favorite animal. Massive, yet graceful, endearing, and passive. In art, especially in Early Italian Renaissance paintings, depictions of elephants represent chastity and virginity. In Gian Lorenzo Bernini's sculpture Pulcino della Minerva, this arbitrary animal was picked to represent the papal family's legacy and stability.
