A girl walks in between elephant sculptures Sommar (left) and Princess Ellie on Singapore's main shopping street Orchard Road yesterday.

The two are part of the Elephant Parade, a collection of 162 elephant sculptures decorated by artists and celebrities, including comedian Ricky Gervais and singer Leona Lewis, which will be on display for the next two months and in January will be auctioned by Sotheby's, with part of the proceeds going to The Asian Elephant Foundation and the conservation fund of Wildlife Reserves Singapore.

Sommar was designed by stationery stockist Prints and Princess Ellie was designed by jewelry designer Matthew Campbell Laurenza.
