About This Painting
The natural beauty of the elephant, the gemstone Lapis Lazuli, and intricate details of wildlife & ancient architecture were the inspiration for this beautiful painting. The details are inspired by the patterns of tropical fish, wild cats, and the classic beauty of Indo-European designs. The stunning Elephant is decorated with tiny golden dots resembling gold and gemstones.
Passionate about saving wildlife, Azi decided to transform this beautiful painting into fashion. A portion of proceeds are donated to selected wildlife conservation foundations dedicated to saving the elephant.
About The Elephant
Elephants can be found in sub-Saharan Africa, South Asia, and Southeast Asia, in different habitats including savannahs, forests, deserts and marshes. They are emotional, highly intelligent, and social, and live in family groups generally led by the eldest elephant. Elephants can live up to 70 years, and they communicate by touch, sight, smell and sound. Elephant intelligence has been compared with that of primates and cetaceans. They are known to have self-awareness and show empathy. Unfortunately, elephants are being tortured as working animals and poached to extinction for their ivory tusks. More than 100,000 elephants have been killed in Africa the last three years. Every 15 minutes, one elephant is killed for its tusks. African elephants are listed as vulnerable and the Asian elephant is classified as endangered. If nothing changes, elephants may become extinct within the next 10 years.
