This One Of A Kind Elephant was sculpted entirely from wool using the needle felting technique. It is 15" long and 9" tall and weighs 14 oz. I worked 80 hours to make it.

I started with natural cream colored wool sheared from our flock of Suffolk sheep to create the entire shape by needle felting very tightly to make extremely stiff legs and body (no armatures used). Then I used natural gray wool from our Suffolk sheep to cover the body and sculpt the wrinkles and other details. Even the tusks are sculpted from wool! It is signed and dated.

Photos of African Elephants were my inspiration and guide as I sculpted. I also watched videos of elephants to inform me in the way they moved and stood and how their legs bend. I was so moved by the care elephants show their herd mates and how intelligent they are. I also learned small things like African Elephants have 4 toes on their front feet and 3 on their rear ones, while Asian Elephants have 5 toes in front and 4 toes in back. They are truly majestic and tender animals.
