Elephant parade A Love Story

Elephant name: A Love Story
Artist: Kesorn Mueanpang
Parade: UK Tour 2014

Inspiration: “Elephants have greeting ceremonies when a friend that has been away returns to the group. Like people, they cry, they play and they love.”

All Elephant Parade replicas are carefully handcrafted in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Due to its handcrafted nature each piece is unique and might vary slightly in design.

Elephant parade events

Elephant Parade is a social enterprise and runs the world’s largest art exhibition of decorated elephant statues. Created by artists and celebrities,

each Elephant Parade statue is a unique art piece. The life-size, baby elephant statues are exhibited in international cities and raise awareness for

the need of elephant conservation. Limited edition, handcrafted replicas and a select range of products are created from the exhibition elephants.

20% of Elephant Parade net profits are donated to elephant welfare and conservation projects.

History

The event was created in 2006 by Marc Spits and his son Mike. It was inspired by Marc Spits’ visit (while logging in Myanmar) to the elephant hospital in Thailand, which constructs prosthetic legs for elephants that encounter landmines. There he saw Mosha, a baby elephant who lost her foot when only seven months old.
