‘Zoonomia’ is inspired by the title of Erasmus Darwin’s 18th Century book of the same title. Erasmus Darwin lived in Lichfield and was a founding member of the Lunar Society. Erasmus was Charles Darwin’s Grandfather and his ideas foreshadowed modern theories of evolution. The design is a fun take on the theme with various colourful animal, bird and insect markings morphing into each other across the surface of the sculpture.

Buy an elephant at auction

At the end of the trail the elephants will come together for a fabulous farewell event. All of our elephants will then go under the hammer in a bidding spectacular where you can take home a piece of the unforgettable trail whilst raising vital funds for local people, and their families, living with a terminal illness.
