By making the Asian elephants' paintings widely accessible to the general public, NOVICA hopes to help increase awareness, encourage conservation, and raise significant funds to assist endangered elephants throughout Asia. For more information, please refer to the elephant's biography.
Please note: The elephants hold the paintbrush carefully, by the tip of their trunk - which is also the elephants' delicate nose area. Slight smudging, and an occasional water droplet here and there are to be expected on most elephant paintings. We like to consider that these imperfections add to the conversation value of each piece.
