Airavata is a mythological white elephant who carries the Hindu god Indra. It is also called 'abhra-Matanga', meaning "elephant of the clouds" Indra is believed to be the god of storms and guardian of the east.
Phillipe has masterfully captured Inra riding on his white elephant in this intricately crafted Sculpture, unbelievably sculpted using Papier Mache techniques.
All of Philippe's sculptures are entirely made by hand with recycled paper and vegetable fiber. They are then decorated with natural pigments and acrylic colors. Respecting the environment, the manufacturing process also makes it possible to recycle old newspapers. The result is impressive, the sculptures really appear as though they've been crafted in heavy stone, bronze, wood, terracotta ... Once you have the object d'art in your hand, you realize due to its lightness that it is only paper. The sculpture is both light and very solid. Remarkable.
Each Sculpture is a One Off Creation and should be treasured in its new home
Note: A product handcrafted from recycled materials may differ slightly in colour when compared to the image you see on the screen. Each piece is unique so the color of the sculpture may slightly vary
