Elephants and culture

  • Elephant Art and Conservation Project: Russian artists, Komar and Melamid, founded an elephant art project where elephants are taught to paint and their paintings are sold to provide funds for elephant conservation. Interesting idea that seems to be able to get people to part with their money.
  • Horst Rellecke's Glass Elephant: an architectural project where Rellecke built a huge glass elephant on the former Maximilian mine in Hamm, Germany. See also the Maximilianpark web site.
  • Lucy the Margate Elephant: was built in 1881 by real estate speculator James Lafferty as an advertisement for land that he wished to sell. She is now a local landmark.
  • Ganesh Chaturthi: information on the festival which marks the birthday of Ganesh, the elephant-headed Hindu god.
  • Ganesha, the elephant-god
  • Forbes Balloon: a hot air balloon shaped like an elephant.
