The prancing horse that graces Ferraris was originally Enzo Ferrari’s effort to honor an Italian aviator who fought in the first world war. The dancing elephant mascot with which Ettore Bugatti chose to grace his most magnificent work, the Bugatti Royale, was also a tribute, though not to honor a military hero. The dancing elephant was originally sculpted by Rembrandt Bugatti, Ettore’s brother, who had made a name for himself in the art world as a sculptor of animals. A sensitive soul, Rembrandt Bugatti unfortunately committed suicide at the age of 32 in 1916, apparently tormented by the violence of WWI and the use of his rearing pachyderm was his brother’s form of memorializing him.
