World of Delights is so attracted to the ideas behind Elephant Parade. We have adopted the idea.
The Asian elephant is threatened with extinction. Elephant Parade has dedicated itself to the preservation of this extraordinary mammal and organises elephant parades in various European cities. Wherever Elephant Parade pitch their tents, hundreds of brightly-coloured art elephants take the streets of the city by storm for several months at a time. Without exception these are unique works of art, painted by artists from all over the world.
After the parade, all art elephants are auctioned off and the proceeds go to the Elephant Family, the world’s largest elephant charity.
6 parades have been organised so far:
- 2007 – Rotterdam
- 2008 – Antwerp
- 2009 – Amsterdam
- 2010 – London, Emmen and Bergen (North Holland)
- 2011 - Copenhagen
World of Delights is the exclusive supplier of replica elephants in three different sizes: 10, 20 and 30 centimetres. All are limited editions, complete with official certificate. World of Delights lends support to the various parades with theme shops that provide the necessary additional attention.
