Elephant name: Dexter
Artist: Erika Severin
Parade: Traveling Herd Europe
Inspiration: "Elephants are beautiful. They got a distinctive shape and their skin is covered by a complex and gorgeous pattern. No artist can improve the sensation of a living elephant.
I’ve given my elephant a pattern of thorns in black and white to protect him. The pattern is inspired by the improvisations of jazz music, and the name Dexter is a reference to the legendary jazz musician Dexter Gordon.
Black is a colour."
All Elephant Parade replicas are carefully handcrafted in Chiang Mai, Thailand. Due to its handcrafted nature each piece is unique and might vary slightly in design.
