India bids for spectacular elephant sculptures to help save the Asian elephants
The first ever Elephant Parade India is a resounding success with an outpouring of love and support from the public of Mumbai. There is now less than a week left to buy one of these exceptional pieces of art and raise funds for conservation in the process - online at Paddle8.com or by contacting the organisers.
The Elephant Parade India benefit auction features a magnificent collection of sculptures by artists, designers, actors and celebrities including Amitabh Bachan, Shahrukh Khan and Abram Khan, Sabyasachi Mukherjee, L.N. Tallur, Manish Malhotra and Bhajju Shyam, winner of the Padma Shri Award 2018. Fashion, architecture, folk and fine art collide in this collection of powerful masterpieces created as an ode to their majestic endangered cousins - the wild Asian elephant.
Created as part of the UK India Year of Culture, Elephant Parade India is organized by Elephant Family in association with Good Earth and in partnership with the Wildlife Trust of India. 100% of the proceeds generated through the online auction will raise funds to secure 101 crucial elephant corridors in India, the pathways that elephants depend upon to get from one forest feeding ground to the next.
