At that time we had to chose between Crocodile (because PG was 
considered the last dinosaur that survived), Elephant and I was playing 
with a raytraced diamond. As a compromise I "suggested" the Elephant 
inside the diamond, and somehow that prototype ended up on the website - 
sure it didn't print well, it was just way to fuzzy and bad in contrast.

BTW, that image on the website had "slonik" as filename or "alt" text, 
don't remember exactly. Back then I wondered what that means.
