Holi Elephants

Elephants are an important part of Indian culture. A whole day is dedicated to them during the Hindu celebration of Holi. They are painted and draped in colorful fabric and jewels for a parade through the streets. We made these colorful creations using crayon and water activated tempera bricks.  The crayon acts as a resist to the paint, and allows the design to show through.
