This beautiful elephant named Dazzlephant, #202 was created by Pochoir. Artist's Inspiration: "Disruptive pattern camouflage - dazzle graffiti".
This beautiful elephant named Eko , #195 was created by Paul Kidby. Artist's Inspiration: "The design for Eko is influenced by Indian patterns in a palette of blue and golds; a vine grows from the bottom of the trunk up and over the elephants back in a living canopy like an exotic blanket. Swinging amid the branches are orangutans to reflect the sponsor charity The Orangutan Foundation." This elephant is in aid of the Orangutan Foundation.
This next elephant is #209, Harmony. was created by Rebecca Campbell. Her inspiration: "Underneath the leafy canopy of bamboo, elephants and tigers wander through. I painted this on behalf of the Wildlife Protection Society of India, they wanted to show elephants and tigers sharing the same environment." This elephant is in aid of WPSI and fetched £22,000 when auctioned.
I am not sure of this next elephant - #243, Hope of Freedom. Created by Sculptor Suzie Marsh, with the casting done by Carter Technical. Artist's Inspiration: "I have long admired the animal welfare work of AnimalsAsia Foundation and am delighted to be able to support the moon bears through my work. This sculpture is a chance to raise awareness for two iconic threatened species." This elephant is in aid of Animals Asia Foundation. It is certainly different from the others, at least.
