Art Collectors rejoice! These prints are in limited quantities, and are made from the original artwork painted by Kamala.
Kamala was born in 1975 in Sri Lanka’s Yala National Park. Orphaned at three months of age, she was found at the bottom of an abandoned well by park staff. Even her name, which means "Lotus Flower" is artistic and was given to her at an elephant orphanage near Pinnawala, Sri Lanka. Through a cooperative effort with the Sri Lankan government, Kamala, and two other elephants orphaned around the same time, were brought to the Calgary Zoo, in 1976.
Kamala was relocated to her new home at the National Zoo in 2014, but she is always in our hearts here at the Wilder Institute Calgary Zoo!
