Jumbo the Elephant

Jumbo the elephant is named after the elephant in the stories that my Grandpa used to make up when I was a kid. Jumbo is made from high quality, unused upholstery fabric offcuts and discontinued fabric samples.


His trunk is slightly poseable, as shown in the photos. His ear are also wired, so can be posed as you prefer. His tusks are made from resin, and are removeable. Hi eyes are glass, and his plaque is made of wood.


Jumbo the elephant’s dimensions are Approximately 730mm H x 600 mm w x 440mm D. This will vary slightly depending on how you pose the ears and truck.


Elephants will be shipped with the tusks removed, and the ears folded over the face. This is so the tusks do not get broken in transit and to reduce the package size (and therefore shipping cost). They are very easy to install, and you will receive instructions on how to do this.


An heavy duty type of blue-tac is used to hold them in. You may set them in permanently if you wish, and I will instruct you how to do this too, but please note, I am not allowed to send glue in the mail.


More about my Faux Taxidermy Creations

All my animals are mounted on a wooden plaque with a keyhole type hanger set into the back. All you need is a hook, screw, or nail that is suitable for your wall, to hang it on.


They are made from high quality upholstery fabric scraps and swatch books, and most of my fabrics have been saved from waste. I use a variety of trims and hardware when needed, to support any fragile edges. For some styles, I will fray the edges on purpose.


I use a polyurethane foam form and build off  that. The ears are sewn, The eyes are glass or resin. I make the mane and forelock  by unravelling fabrics to make a fringe, or by using yarn. They are finished with scotch guard.


All my beasts are unique – I never make two the same.


Please note – these are not a toy.
