Elephant name: Golden Lotus
Artist: Stefan Philipps
Parade: Traveling Herd Asia
Inspiration: "For generations white Lotus flowers and shiny golden pagodas have been associated with Thailand's cultural heritage. While gold is a symbol for enlightenment and eternity, the white Lotus flower symbolises purity and harmony, and its green leaves can be interpreted as a symbol of hope. With the fusion of these meaningful symbols and materials I would like to celebrate the Asian elephants, these strong, peaceful and intelligent giants who need our help to survive and thrive."
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.
