Elephant parade Milly 30 cm

Elephant name: Milly 30 cm
Artist: Victoria Enright
Parade: Traveling Herd Europe

Inspiration: “My design on ‘Milly’ was inspired by the new modern and popular trend of adult colouring books. These intricate and creative designs help relax and unwind the mind. I have been drawing these designs and expanding on them for many years and this was the first time I was able to take my drawings from a flat canvas to a large scale, 3D form. I was honoured to be asked to take part in the parade and loved the whole experience of it. I love Elephant Parade and cannot wait for Milly to explore Europe in honour of such a great cause.”

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.
