After the 1,600 Pandas departed, the Elephants stampeded into Hong Kong. Elephant Parade is the world’s largest art exhibition of decorated elephant statues created by artists and celebrities. After the exhibition, the statues will be auctioned. The idea is to use the power of art to bring forth a meanful message of animal conservation and protection. Individuals can also buy miniature replicas of the elephants whereby 20% of the net profit are donated to The Asian Elephant Foundation.
Since it was Amber Rainstorm today, I was at Pacific Place Mall today to watch a movie. I was pleasantly surprised to find the elephants dotted around the mall and had a fun time taking pictures.
Hah! A map of HK, no doubt dedicated to Hiker Dude 😜
Money makes the world go round, and so the auspicious lucky coin Elephants to reign in good fortune for the Mall
And with the mooncake season or mid-autumn festival coming up, an Elephant Mooncake sounds like a good festive creation
A statue designed by my favourite designer.
Hong Kong is a tourist destinations and of course a couple of Elephants decorated with local flavours are a must! Themes included food and tourist landmarks.
One of the crowd’s favourite as judged by the number of people taking pictures. The cutest of ’em all, I reckon! This is by celebrated local designer Carrie Chau
The exhibition started on August 1 and will continue to September 9 2014. Do pay the Elephant Parade a visit – other locations includes CityPlaza in Taikoo Shing and CityGate in Tung Chung.
