Upon moving to the UAE, the artist was inspired by the multicultural clothing worn by different nationalities. In particular, the bright headscarves worn by many women and sold in the souqs. She also experienced getting henna and fell in love with the intricately detailed designs. She combined both of these elements in a design that celebrates the beauty of women.
An Elephant Parade Limited Edition Original is a brilliant gift to give and to own. All are hand-painted by talented artists, are part of an exclusive limited series and all sales generate income for elephant conservation charities. Barring the 75cm all elephants are presented in a smart black gift box with a hologram of authenticity and a certificate listing the artist, series, production number, year and parade city.
Known for their wisdom and strength. as well as being a symbol of good fortune, our Elephants should be placed near a door or window, facing inward, to ensure they then bring luck into your home or office.
Elephants can be personalised for weddings, celebrations and other events as well as making great corporate gifts, simply contact us to find out more.
As our elephants are painted by hand no two are the same. Cut-out images are mainly of the 20cm version, variations in the details of a design between sizes are possible depending on the design complexity. Images are not to scale, lifestyle images tend to feature full size elephant originals where artwork may differ to smaller originals.
Elephant Parade is a social enterprise running the worlds largest art exhibition of decorated elephant statues donating 20% of all profits to raise awareness and funds for elephant conservation as, without help, experts predict the Elephant could become extinct within 30 years.

For all of us sustainable means many things but we feel an important factor is the life of a product. As our Grandparents taught us if we take care of things then they should last! All our products are selected with that in mind; they are built to last. They may cost a little more but once bought then they should last for many years, if not a lifetime! A benefit to your pocket, but also the planet.
If you find anything you disagree with or want to know more about then, please, just ask, this is an ongoing work in progress! Call us on 01993 867075 or email [email protected] We care!
Elephants could be extinct in the wild within 30 years - Be Part of Saving Them!
Elephant Parade is a social enterprise and runs the worlds 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.
Elephant Parade was founded by father and son Marc and Mike Spits in 2006. Whilst on holiday in Thailand, Marc met a baby elephant named Mosha, who had lost part of her leg after stepping on a landmine. Mosha inspired Marc and Mike to create Elephant Parade.
Mosha was just 7 months old when she suffered a landmine injury whilst walking near the Burmese border. This severe injury led to the loss of her leg under her knee which, unfortunately, puts extreme strain on the other three limbs and her spine as she continues to grow.
With the help of the prosthetic leg, she is able to walk, but requires a new mould every year that she grows. Elephants grow every year up to 20 years of age. These new fittings are a large effort and expense as they require continued pioneering in a new area of elephant and veterinary medicine. Given the extent of her injury, Mosha will remain at FAE Elephant Hospital as a permanent resident
