Introducing Elephant Parade, collectable replica elephant figurines based on the worldwide public art exhibition, to raise funds and awareness for The Asian Elephant Foundation.
Who doesn’t love elephants? We are proud to introduce a new range of collectable elephant figurines called Elephant Parade, based on the world’s largest public art exhibition of decorated elephant statues that seek to raise funds and awareness for The Asian Elephant Foundation, in support for Asian elephant conservation.

Elephant Parade was founded by father and son, Marc and Mike Spits. During his visit to the Friends of the Asian Elephant Hospital in Thailand, Marc came across Mosha, a baby elephant who was rushed into intensive care after stepping on a landmine and losing her lower right leg. Thankfully the Hospital was soon able to get Mosha up and walking again with a prosthetic leg. It was during this time Marc was inspired to create Elephant Parade. Elephant Parade has been exhibited in over 12 countries worldwide since its inception in 2006, including Milan, Singapore, Copenhagen, Amsterdam and currently in London, to name just a few.

Each elephant canvas is painted by local and international artists offering a truly unique piece of art. At the end of each exhibition each Elephant Parade piece is auctioned off by internationally renowned auction houses with all auction proceeds and 20% of Elephant Parade’s profits donated to The Asian Elephant Foundation.

Each miniature size replica piece measures approximately 10cm (height), is hand-numbered and come with a storycard detailing the artists inspiration for their work. Each elephant is beautifully presented in a tin window box.
With a portion of the profits from sales of these figurines going to The Asian Elephant Foundation.

All elephant replicas are hand-painted by local talented artists at the production facility in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
Every elephant is made out of polyresin. Painting and affixing ornaments can take between two and ten days; depending on the design’s complexity.
Quality control and assurance is one of our highest priorities, and has rigorous quality control procedures in place to assure high level of standards in raw materials, painting/production, and packaging.
Please note however that due to the hand-painted nature of our elephants there will always be minor variability between two “identical” products.
