Lisa Bronze with edges sml02

Now available:  The magic of J.A. Pippett

This is a very special work of art donated by artist/sculpturer, J.A.Pippett. The piece is called EARS and was sculpted by the artist as a donation to the Elephants of Africa Rescue Society in time for the 2004 fundraising. event. Another reason this piece is so important to us is that it depicts the logo of our EARS elephant sanctuary and our very own little elephant "Lisa" modeled for the piece.

These pieces have accounted for over to $12,000.00 in donations to EARS and we could not be more grateful to have a man like Joe Pippett on our side.

2005 saw yet another special gift from  J.A.Pippett - another bronze to be auctioned off at our 2005 EARS event. This piece was modeled for by our very own "Josef: who was placed in the caring hand of the EARS logo. Joe finished the piece just in time to have the original clay at our EARS event after which it went directly to the foundry for casting and bronzing and placement on a beautiful marble base.

Our logo says it all, their fate is in our hands. It was originally drawn and donated by artist Linda Rosen and is now further embellished by the work of J.P. Pippett. Joe started what he calls the EARS collection two years ago with Lisa's piece and has since added to his donation by including our Lion Josef, and now, our very own Bear Brandi to the collection. This one's a bear lovers ultimate "must have"!

Joe has future ideas for additional pieces. More of Joe's incredible work can be seen in the Andre Balyon gallery in Carmel, CA. Give us a call any time for more information.

EARS Buckles sml02

Once again, our friend ~ donor and animal enthusiast, scupture Joseph Pippett has graced us with a very special gift in creating these stunning belt buckles depicting our very own Elephants of Africa Rescue Society (EARS) logo. For those who follow Joe's FB (and those who should friend him today), you know that Joe now has a gorgeous new line of designer fashion buckles and we could not be more proud to be a part of his endeavors.

These EARS buckles are cast sold brass with a choice of Silver or Bronze patina. Diameter is: 2-3/8" with EARS engraved on the back along with the artist's signature. Cost is $325. We're hoping this is a must have for many of our Wild Things, EARS, elephant or animal enthusiast fans since Joe is donating any profits from this project to the elephants of EARS.
