Ever since my trip to India I’ve been fascinated by elephants. I love their kind nature, extremely impressive physique and strength. Since the 5th of September there’s been an Elephant Parade in Amsterdam. This lovely initiative displays huge statues of elephants across Amsterdam. The elephants are painted by artist from across the globe.

The Elephant Parade is held for the third time and lasts until the 31th of October. On the 12th of November the statues will be auctioned to the highest bid and the profits will be donated to the Elephant Family. You can also go to Amsterdam and paint your own little elephant or buy smaller versions of the big ones. Below you can view a selection of my favourite pieces.
