Herds of elephants crossing Green Park

Green Park, London, June 2021

CoExistence is an environmental art exhibition by Elephant Family and The Real Elephant Collective, in memory of Mark Shand. The herds of elephants have been created deep in the jungles of Tamil Nadu by Indigenous communities who live in close proximity to these wonderful mammals.


Now over to all of you. Do come and join us in our Saturday six-word musings.

I’ll admit that many of us openly break the numeric rule and share far more words (all excellent of course!) so the key rule is to have a title of six words – and then create around that the post that you desire! Perhaps in bunches of 6 words if you’re feeling inspired.

To join the challenge, please put a link in your post to the URL of this post. Then come back here and leave us a comment. If you have any problems with linking, just put your own URL into the comment. And do feel free to socialise digitally – tweet, instagram, flickr, etc. with the hashtags #SixWordSaturday and #6WS.

  1. We came across this herd a few days ago and I shared them for the Photographing Public Art Challenge. Janet of sustainabilitea then told me about your post so I had to pop across and see more images of these amazing elephants 🙂 So glad you liked and shared them too!

    • I went to look up the sculptures and find that you can buy them. If you have deep pockets that is!

  2. At first, they looked carved of single, very large blocks of wood. Then, the close-ups revealed the tightly joined reeds (or vines? roots?) Incredible craftsmanship and beautiful wood tones!

  3. What a wonderful work !!!

    The way their movement is captured, is just amazing.

    It’s quite interesting to see that it was created by people from Tamil Nadu, which is close to my home place…

    Thank you so much for sharing 🙂
