An angel and her elephant

Can anyone tell me anything about this lovely, mossy, larger-than-life angel and her equally green baby elephant companion? They both seem so serene, so at peace here in... the police station (?!).

Yes, you must drop by the police station in Piazza San Marco if you want to see them. (Please do not write to ask me what I was doing there, and thank you very much.)

But nobody there will be able to tell you anything about them. Indeed, they will all act terribly annoyed if you ask.
