gofundme campaign

 I hand carved this African Elephant 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.  Over the past year, 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.  They are working on long term solutions such as installing and fixing solar pumps, concreted watering holes & now starting a piping project. The gofundme campaign is successful due to all the kindhearted souls that continue to support Patrick and help save the animals in Tsavo, Africa.  For each Medallion sold, $20 will go to directly to Patrick & his volunteers. 

Each piece I carve will tell a story that you can share to spread awareness. I carved this elephant from the pictures Patrick posted coming out of Africa.  He gets up close and sends 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 hand engraved with water is life on the back.
