This has to be the most unique request I have ever had - to paint a member!
Cast from Mark Shand’s collection of fertility symbols, artists have been asked to decorate them and are to be sold for the amazing charity @elephantfamily which supports the sadly declining Asian Elephant population.
Please swipe right to see what is inside the box....
‘Private Member'. It’s all Eve’s fault, if she hadn’t tasted the forbidden fruit and persuaded Adam to do the same, we’d all be walking around happily naked! Instead, having disobeyed God’s order, they realised their state of undress and covered their private parts with fig leaves.

Mark Shand’s Adventures and Curiosities launches on the 8th February 2018 at 6.30pm, to find out more please go to www.adventuresandcuriosities.com

‘Mark Shand’s Adventures and his Cabinet of Curiosities’ is a multi-medium exhibition curated by his daughter Ayesha Shand. The exhibition surveys the extraordinary journeys made by the philanthropist, as seen through the eyes of the photographers that accompanied him, and the contemporary artists who have been inspired by his mission. The exhibition, auction and sales will be hosted exclusively online from 8th – 25th February (link in bio), with all proceeds going to Mark Shand’s charity, Elephant Family.

In 1988 Mark Shand rescued an elephant called Tara from a life of misery begging on the streets of India. Together they embarked on a journey which was described in Mark’s best-selling book: Travels on my Elephant. Their story led to the creation of the charity Elephant Family, and a life time of commitment to the endangered Asian elephant. Now, Mark's journey has inspired an exhibition, curated by his daughter Ayesha Shand. The exhibition and online sales are hosted by @travelstomyelephant at adventuresandcuriosities.com, and all proceeds go to Elephant Family.

The exhibition does more than visit the vistas of Mark Shand’s travels, it also displays the wild objects that crossed his path and pricked his interest along the way, including an extensive collection of phallic fertility sculptures from tribes and villages across India and Indonesia. The exhibition and online sales can be accessed via the link in our bio until 25th Feb, with all proceeds going to Mark's charity Elephant Family. @elephantfamily @beach.studio #adventuresandcuriosities  #sculpture  #art  #fertility  #photography  #exhibition  #adventures  #curiosity

We hand painted some ancient Jesmonite ‘phallic fertility symbols’ for Mark Shand’s Charity, Elephant Family. Our inspiration was taken from the hand painted Goods trucks of India. ‘Hard’ work for a great cause!

So, I was asked to take part in an extremely unusual project for Mark Shand's elephant family again. This time, notnto decorate an egg, but to decorate a cast from his collection of fertility symbols that he had gathered on his trips to see his beloved elephant Tara in India. To see the whole piece, visit www.adventuresandcuriosities.com where you can see around one hundred of these items, all decorated and interpreted differently, each by a different artist. I'll post more images from 'Monkey Business' over the coming days. #adventuresandcuriosities
