{elephant parade}

Elephant Parade is a support organization that raises and donates money for the Asian elephant, that is threatened by extinction. A little while ago the Elephant Parade too over the town of Heerlen, not very far from where I live. Elephants are decorated by local artist (not necesarily painters) and famous people. These elephants were placed in Heerlen as a an open air exhibition. When the exhibition is over, they will be auction off. You can also buy smaller versions at a temporary shop over on the internet on the Elephant Parade's webshop

The elephants are so cute and very beautifully decorated. Here are some photo's which I lent from the Elephant Parade's site.






This little guy I found over at Ikea's this week. I love this one the best. He is decorated in the same manner a Dalarna horse. Unfortunately this elephant is "unofficial",  it can not be bought in the shop.

Bye,
