Our family of elephant sculptures ranges from big to small and is popular with so many of our lovely customers. However, we thought we’d dedicate a blog to the tiniest in the selection: the miniature elephant sculpture.
Despite being only 1ft tall, this size is a hit with all elephant lovers. All of the signature characteristics of the African creature are depicted to perfection from the wide, flapping ears to agile, textured trunk. This small but striking piece of artwork also boasts charming eyes, rounded belly and a bushy tail.
Hand-crafted from recycled materials, various different squares of metal are shaped and welded around a wire frame, creating a bespoke design that is unique to each piece. The individuality of miniature elephants makes them a perfect gift for a friend, partner or family member that is sure to impress.
If you’re thinking of introducing the mini elephant into your own home, then why not place one on a side table next to a colourful vase of flowers or on a high shelf in the dining room for all to see. Two elephants look effective when positioned either side of a fireplace or other central feature in a room. They look almost symmetrical with the slightest of differences noticeable in their stance and facial expressions.
Get set for the summer by arranging some mini elephants outside in the garden. They make cute and delightful additions to flower beds lining thriving lawns and their brown-toned metal exteriors complement modern patio areas. Organise a herd of miniature elephants around your decking next to outdoor seating and plant pots or perhaps against a fence panel decorated in climbing bamboo.
Wherever you plan to place your sculpture, at just £99, the miniature elephant is an example of just how easy it is to bring a symbol of the African wild into your home without being too large or intrusive.
