The assumption of archeologists that the 2,5-ton elephant found in Koblevo was created in the XVI-XVII centuries and I got to this area from - for ship-wrecks, wasn't confirmed.
Today, on July 23, the Evening Nikolaev newspaper editorial office organized departure of the Nikolaev archeologists in Koblevo. As the deputy director of the Lukomorye center Alexander Smirnov, the found elephant - "remake", and concrete told us. It was created about 40 years ago in the Soviet Union. Probably, it "stuck together" specially for children's camp. As it could get to the earth on a beach - while remains a riddle. The archeologist suggested that fishermen could use him as an anchor. Local old residents told researchers that once on a koblevsky beach there were about ten such elephants.
At the same time, it is impossible to tell that the elephant isn't of any value. It isn't of value as an old times instruction, but it can be considered as art of the latest time. So to speak, the colleague "Girls with an oar". Certain architectural concept of late modern time.
