Description

Elephant parade Bolero 10 cm

Elephant Name : Bolero 10 cm
Artist : Narin Khantawong
Inspiration : “This is how I think we can see the classic Bolero rhythm, how
we can communicate the music through painting. The softness
and gentleness of music re-told by the soft lines. A combined
sense of hearing and seeing that is Bolero.”

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.
