Subtitled "Non-orientable Diminutive Proboscidean".

OK, well here's what this is. It's a Klein bottle in the shape of a very confused elephant. But wait, there's more! Of course "kleine-fant" means "little phant" in German, so that's why he's on the head of a pin!!! I know, right?

ETA: If you don't know what a Klein bottle is, here's a picture. It's the spherical form of a mobius strip, but it can only exist in 4 dimensional space.

Sort of looks like a Dr. Seuss character.

I definitely had Seuss in mind when I did the shading. In fact, I had Green Eggs And Ham open for reference. I find that method more satisfying than shading with color.
