Made of an eye catching blue grey acrylic, these elephants earrings are handmade in Australia...where importing ivory and rhino horn is banned, but sadly domestic ivory trade is still permitted. A local ivory trade ban has been tabled in late 2019, but unfortunately with bushfires and Covid-19 - it may have slipped off the top of the priority list.
Story behind the design
We're all familiar with the African elephant, so I wanted to give a spotlight to its cousin, the Indian elephant.
So, what’s the difference?
The first thing you notice are the ears! While the African elephant can sport large, fan like ears, the Indian elephant is a bit less Dumbo and a bit more dwarf! Their tail is super long and can go past their knees and brush the ground and they also have (and this is gonna sound weird) one trunk 'finger' while the African elephant has two!
Plus, they're more closely related to the Wooly Mammoth than their African affiliate.
Unfortunately, human intervention and global warming has planted this lovely pachyderm firmly on the ICUN Red List, as their population has decreased by 50% since the 1950’s :(
The elephant mandala on the other hand has only grown in popularity, and was first introduced to the West by prominent psychoanalyst, Carl Jung (of all people!), when he realised the potential of personal growth and spiritual development that this design offers to individuals with complex personalities.
These handmade earrings are made from laser cut acrylic.
