Zed the Mammoth is a class assignment to create a container of any kind, for a prehistoric creature that was a local to the Los Angeles area many centuries ago. For this project, I decided to create a toy packaging for a Columbian mammoth figurine. This concept was built off of the La Brea Tar Pit's very own Zed. I imagine Zed being sold at the La Brea Tar Pit's gift shop, where children may purchase Zed and "excavate" him from his container. Within the container, the interior is decorated in bones and tar, allowing children to "save" Zed and bringing him back to life.
