38 elephants were put under Sotherby’s auction hammer on 12 January 2012 at St. Regis Hotel while the remaining elephants were auctioned off on 14 January 2012 at a Champagne Brunch and Champagne Sundowner at Fullerton Hotel.

S$445,000 of the proceeds raised will go to The Asian Elephant Foundation and Wildlife Reserves Singapore Conservation Fund.

Elephantasm, painted by renowned Filipino artist Ronald Ventura, fetched the highest sale bid of S$62,000.

Well, if you were not able to secure yourself one of these life-sized baby elephants, you can still purchase the miniature-sized replicas from the Elephant Parade Gallery Store on Level 4 of TANGS Orchard or at www.elephantparade.com/shop.
