With a mission to "preserve the art of Africa," it is to no surprise that Shompole will be loved by globetrotters everywhere. Inspired by the work of the David Sheldrick Trust elephant orphanage, the pendant tells the story of the moment when a rehabilitated baby elephant is adopted by a new herd in Tsavo National Park. Ten percent of proceeds go to support this pioneering elephant rescue program in Kenya.
PLEASE NOTE: All pendants are hand carved and have their own, unique irregularities. Slight color variation in horn may occur.
Also available in Cream Horn.
