“The Amazing Eliphante” – Detour Art – 2013

The Amazing Eliphante

Located south of Sedona, near the town of Cornville, Arizona, Eliphante is a mesmerizing sculptural and architectural environment created over the past 30 years by artists Mike Kahn and Leda Livant. Set on three acres adjacent to a creek bed, the composition consists of three main structures:

  1. Eliphante, the original construction, with a cave-like entrance tunnel that leads to a magnificent vaulted room complete with a built-in piano and walls of driftwood mosaics and colored glass.
  2. Pipe Dreams, where Mike & Leda display their paintings and sculpture.
  3. The Hippadome, Mike & Leda’s living quarters, furnished with beautiful free-form wood furniture. In addition, the grounds are accented with arbors, gardens, a pool, and sculptures.
