Elephants by the seaside

Carvoeiro is hosting an exhibition inspired by elephants until May 8.

Eighteen large elephant sculptures have been painted by 18 artists, using different methods and styles to create the Passion exhibition currently on show at the town’s square.

Equally impressive is an ‘Elephant Tree’ that consists of smaller elephant sculptures in black and white stacked up to create the shape of a tree and which can be found in the same area.

The elephant exhibition, which opened in time for the Carvoeiro Easter Fair last weekend, has been developed by local artist and entrepreneur Karl Heinz Stock from the Quinta dos Vales farm and winery in Estômbar.

He was also the creator of the Dancing with Bears exhibition, which included large bear sculptures artistically decorated.
