Elephant Parade, Pacific Mall, Admiralty

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 ūüėú
