The Puang Chompoo Elephant was designed by Anukun Hamala for the Travelling Herd 2016 Parade. The design was inspired by the artist's wish to see all the disabled elephants living in the forests, abundant with food and with plenty of room to play.
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. Life-size statues are exhibited in cities around the world and raise awareness and funds for elephant conservation. Experts say the Asian Elephant could become extinct in 30 years!
Numbered limited edition, hand-painted replicas are created from the exhibition elephants and 20% of Elephant Parade net profits are donated to elephant welfare and conservation projects.
Each elephant is gift boxed and has a hologram of authenticity and a certificate listing the artist, series, production number, year, and parade city. They are hand-painted at the Elephant Parade studio in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
Rigorous quality control procedures maintain high standards of quality, but please bear in mind that due to their hand-painted nature, there will always be minor variances and imperfections.
