I modelled this Baby Elephant sculpture to try to emphasise the joy that having elephants in our world represents. The species is becoming critically endangered. I believe art can help people think about why these precious animals should be protected.

I’d thought originally to sculpt an elephant in mortal pain, its tusks harvested by poachers. But the images of their suffering are only one side. We need reminders why the lives of the animals are important. I wanted to represent their joy in life and I felt that the Baby Elephant sculpture could be a really strong expression of that.

When I model animals I try where possible to find examples from life. In this case, I used many, many photos. They helped to show the animal’s anatomical features, the way its skin lies over its muscles or alters its shape, and their different poses and attitudes. One day I would dearly love to travel to see these wonderful animals in the wild!

– Your baby elephant sculpture raises money for wildlife conservation –

The Baby Elephant statue is part of my Charities Range. 10% of the proceeds go to the David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation. The wildlife conservation charity particularly focuses on Africa and Asia. It fights wildlife crime, protects natural areas and engages local communities in finding long-term, sustainable solutions to protect their native wildlife. The David Shepherd Wildlife Foundation works to end the ivory trade. It rescues and rehabilitating elephants orphaned by it. It also provides park protection for the future security of Africa’s elephants. The artist himself painted many elephants, and prints and paintings are gifted and sold to help raise money for the trust.
