Sculpture description:
Bronze resin small Semi Contemporary/Abstract Elephant statuette, or Small Elephant cross Clockwork cold cast Bronze Figurine statue. April Young has long been fascinated with the relationship between man and beast, being a great lover of horses. But it was man`s commodification of animals, even wild ones, that gave rise to the ideas for this piece. The design concept references the elephant`s notoriety for memory, combined with the recklessness of their treatment as an ivory product. The use of dismantled time pieces to form the surface for the piece mirrors the time critical nature of the species` conservation.
Artist's comments:
It`s a sad fact that, due to a combination of poaching and destruction of their natural habitat, the elephant population is under serious threat. Since 1900, when the population was a thriving 10 million in Africa, numbers have dwindled to a mere 470, 000 (by the year 2007). Hearing that the elephant, our largest and most powerful land mammal, had received a `vulnerable` status seems so ironic. It was this irony that provided the inspiration which mobilised April to make a statement on their behalf. 5% of sales from this piece will be donated to `TUSK` Elephant Conservation Charity.

Customer comment on 'Accepting (abstract Seated Woman Sitting statuettte)' by Plamen Dimitrov
Dear Plamen and Peter, I am please to advise you both that `Acceptance` arrived yesterday afternoon and I unwrapped her in the early hours of this morning. She is without doubt the most beautiful item I have ever possessed. She is not a mere statue, she is sublime and a real presence in our lives already. Her slenderness and beauty is a sheer joy to behold. Thank you both and especially you Plamen for your creativity. You cannot possibly know just how much this beau... [Read more]
