Elephant Parade

Seeking to raise public awareness and encouraging public support for Asian elephant conservation, Elephant Parade is the world’s largest open air art exhibition of decorated and artful designs of elephant statues. This year, Elephant Parade has come back to UK for its nationwide tour across major cities nationwide and for the first time, it has chosen to go indoors through placement in regional shopping centres. The colourful and beautiful elephant statues were designed by different renowned artists and these elephants will be in for auction to raise some money to support the Asian elephant. Every single one of them is truly alluring indeed. There are hundreds of these elephant statues all over the world but I managed to photograph all of the elephant statues on display here in UK. I was captivated by their beauty with a thought that by photographing them, I can also raise some sort of awareness as well to save these beautiful creatures in the wild.
