Elephant name: Tara Astamangala
Artist: Good Earth
Parade: India 2018
Inspiration: "Heroine of the epic tale ‘Travels on my Elephant’, Tara is one of the most famous Asian elephants in the world. She was a particularly docile creature who stood out among the many difficult elephants around her. Tara began her life as a mendicant, begging for a living. As a spontaneous act of Mark’s love, she became a gift to the Wright family, and today Tara is the queen of Kipling Camp in Kanha. TARA ASTAMANGALA is our Buddhist ode to the gentle giant who enchanted Mark and his readers around the world."
