The Painted Elephants of India

India

Jaipur, India's elephant festival: one jumbo sized beauty pageant. Part of the festival is the 'gaj shringar' exhibition, which displays everything to do with elephants – from howdahs (the carriages placed on top of the animals) to the ornaments and textiles that they wear during the celebrations.

Vintage photo of little girl with baby elephant - so cute! I think she's leading him by the trunk and stopped for a second to decide where to go next, look how patient he's being :+)

Happy 80th Birthday To Daphne Sheldrick, one of the most inspiring women I have come across in my life!

help save the elephants so this little one gets to stay with his/her mom. She's vulnerable to poachers.
