Elka is majestic, magical & mesmerizing.
Windows Into Africa is a quirky, character filled family from the imagination of my daughter Alaura. The design brief that I gave her was that all designs had to fit into a 30 cm x 40 cm perimeter and we had to have an elephant! After a few attempts, Alaura's words were "Mum, you just can't put creativity into a box!" Elka was just too magnificent to be part of the smaller group so we decided to make her a beautiful stand alone piece.
