How did the baby elephant get her trunk?
The elephant is a very special animal - its appearance is not like anything else in the animal kingdom.
Particularly prominent is the trunk, which the elephant uses to gather food and spray water.
In a famous tale by Rudyard Kipling, the baby elephant gets its trunk by the "grey-green, muddy Limpopo river".
Here, out of curiosity, it gets too close to the crocodile, which bites into the elephant cub’s nose. And when the baby elephant finally gets pulled free, the nose has grown to a remarkable length.
We can assure you that this isn’t how Chresten Sommer gave his elephant cub its trunk, but he has created a figure that looks just like the real thing.
Do you have room for two elephants?
With their modest size, we’re almost certain you’ll have room for both of Chresten Sommer's elephants.
In addition to the little Ella, he has also created a big elephant, Ollie, and together these two figurines make the cutest little family.
Both are handmade and hand-assembled figures made in FSC-certified oak and maple.
