Water is Life African Elephant in Bronze
Water is Life: The African Elephant
Designed, Hand Carved wax & cast into Bronze
I hand carved this African Elephant head in honor of Patrick Kilonzo Mwalua , the founder of Tsavo Volunteers. Due to prolonged drought , Patrick and his team began working tirelessly to bring truck load after truck load of water to the animals desperately needing to hydrate. A gofundme campaign was set up to help with the mounting costs. As of July 2017.. Patrick and his guardians have purchased their own water truck & have been hard at work building watering holes and filling them through the continued drought. The gofundme campaign is successful due to all the kindhearted souls that continue to support Patrick and help save the animals of Tsavo. For each Medallion, $20 will go to directly to Patrick & his volunteers.
I carved this elephant from the pictures Patrick posted coming out of Africa. He got up close and sent amazing shots of the Tsavo elephants from every angle. Although Elephants have always felt maternal... I feel this one was infused with Patrick's masculine energy and kind heart. I did my best to capture the strength, honor, stability and patience of these magnificent creatures. I hope you find my carving has captured the soul of the elephant and brings it's tremendous attributes to you as the wearer. The medallion is engraved with water is life on the back.
