elephants on parade

Elephants invaded the island-city of Singapore for two months last 11 November to 11 January, 2011.  Colorful statues of elephants painted by local and international artists and sponsored by companies were exhibited in many parts of the city.  We chance a few of them in our visits to The Merlion Park, Singapore Zoo and Esplanade.

The Elephants on Parade,  according to the organizers is the largest open air art exhibition in the preservation of the Asian Elephants worldwide.  Each elephant is unique and they were auctioned-off by Sotheby's. Small replicas were also sold in the Malls.  There were a total of 160 elephants.  Too bad, we missed the others.

Share to you some of these fancy pop arts ~
