Asian Elephant Wall Hanging
This multi-color wall hanging, depicting an Asian elephant, was hand sewn in India by the wife of a mahout. Applique with embroidery, traditional paisley and flower fabrics, on black background, 37.5" x 26".
Many mahout families are poor and supplement their income by selling traditional handicrafts to tourists. When you are traveling in elephant country, you can help by being selective and strategic in your planning and purchases. Visit and support only ethical sanctuaries and rescue centers, those trying to help elephants and humans to live in harmony. Never ride an elephant or purchase ivory or any items made from elephant parts or by elephants (such as paintings).
