Elephant parade Rainbow Reef 15 cm

Elephant Name : Rainbow Reef 15 cm

Artist :   by Nara Strete

Inspiration: Rainbow Reef was conceived when I began thinking about nature conservation and the interconnected relationships between all ecosystems and life on earth. The health of our oceans and river systems affects the health of our land and the creatures that inhabit it. I also wanted to explore nature in a fantastical way – exaggerating the wealth of colours, shapes, and species that live in a coral reef.

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.
