Love for the Giants

A new art exhibit in India raises awareness about human-elephant conflict.  “For the Love of Giants” is an exhibit of fifteen paintings and five pottery pieces by artist Praveen Nandkumar.   All proceeds from the sale of the art will go to A Rocha India, a not-for-profit organization.  They try to reduce human-animal conflicts by building fences with natural and man-made materials, doing camera tracking of wild animals, installing warning systems to alert residents of elephant presence, and running educational programs.

The exhibit is shown in India, at Karnataka Chitrakala Parishath.
