Edinburgh jungle event seeks sponsorship

Friday, August 26, 2011
Opalesque Industry Update - “It is a jungle out there” says Ashwan Khanna, chairman of Elephant Family, a conservation charity, who plans to transform Edinburgh into a jungle filled with animals and replace the sounds of the city with the trumpeting of elephants, birdsong and monkey chatter.

The event will feature 130 life size sculptures of five different endangered species and aims to raise £1million for Conservation awareness and “in field” programs. The sculptures, many of which have been designed by renowned artists and designers are destined to become highly collectible works of art. These sculptures now grace The Royal Botanic Gardens and will be unleashed onto the streets of Edinburgh in early September. It will end with a Grand Auction party with online bidding on September 29th.

Jungle City follows on from the hugely successful Elephant Parade in London last year where 260 beautifully and unique Elephant sculptures graced London and were subsequently auctioned at prices ranging from £3000 and £160,000. Jungle city is set to be Edinburgh’s largest outdoor Art Exhibit and there will be a series of fun events through August and September.

Opalesque’s Matthias Knab attended the London event, saying: “I attended Elephant Parade in London last year and it was a unique, fun event and is a great cause with lasting memories provided by these iconic sculptures.”

Khanna, Chairman of Elephant Family says: “Jungle City is a really fun, interesting and interactive charity event and we welcome everyone’s participation in person or via our global online auction of these remarkable works of Art”.

Many of these beautiful sculptures are available for sponsorship and ALL of them are up for sale via the auction and private bids. For details on sponsorship and the Grand Auction Party - please see www.Jungle-city.org.
