The Elephant Parade in LondonMay 8, 2010
The Elephant parade is here in London. It’s not the return of the Sultan’s Elephant, a three-day event where a giant mechanical Elephant, with an equally super-sized little girl, took over central London in 2006. This is a collection of over 250 Elephants, individually designed by artists and celebrities and dotted around the capital for a short time before they’re auctioned to raise funds for the conservation of Asian Elephants. There’s a website called the http://elephantparadelondon.org/ where you can get more information, if you’re interested. In the meantime, for those of us who live here, or happen to be visiting, we can go in search of these Elephants by either downloading a route map from the site, or going organic and discover them by accident. We can then admire the designs. Here are a few I managed to find in the centre of town.
I thought I’d add a version of Nelly The Elephant by the Toy Dolls. Let’s just say it gives a different feel to the original. I love it.
