Auction before and during LA fundraiser 18 October - get Dionysus sculpture and support!

Our long-term, generous supporter Doug Aja has again donated a beautiful bronze sculpture, this time a bust of famous Dionysus. Dionysus starred in Echo of the Elephants and graces a center spread in the May 1991 issue of National Geographic. The artwork will be auctioned during our fundraiser in LA 18 October - but if you want to give a bid before then please use our contact form! The normal price is $2,200; the minimum bid is half of this. Dionysus is one of many Amboseli elephants that has a special place in our hearts. Joyce spent a lot of time with him during her musth studies in the 1980s and we both followed his struggles during his final days in 2003. You can read our field notes from that time here. Bid for Dionysus, keep his memory alive and support out work!

Doug is an artist living in Vermont, USA, and has African wildlife and the African elephant in particular as his true passion. Part of the proceeds from the sale of his wildlife art is donated to ElephantVoices. Doug is a Member of the Artists for Conservation (AFC).

Dionysus, made famous in the BBC film, Echo of the Elephants, was one of Joyce's focal Amboseli males.
