Nomkhubulwane is the creation of Andries Botha, an eminent South African sculptor, human rights activist and founder of the Human Elephant Foundation (HEF). Botha has created a series of life-size elephants that have been exhibited and or placed around the world including a full herd of 9 in Belgium made from recycled wood from KwaZulu-Natal; a fallen elephant made from recycled cider casks in France; and an elephant in Holland made from recycled leadwood. Nomkhubulwane is one of the newest additions to this magnificent and magical herd. She was created from recycled truck tires and named by Dr. Ian Player, an internationally renowned conservationist.
