Mali in my school – visiting all the Mali Elephants in the Zoo

Melbourne Zoo’s most famous Asian Elephant calf, Mali, has made her way out to 55 Victorian schools – in sculpture form as part of Mali in my School, a special 150th Anniversary Event.

We recently took the chance to visit the Melbourne Zoo. We loved all the Mali Elephants throughout the Melbourne city and thought it would be great to have a look at some of the amazing smaller versions – Mali in my School. 55 schools created mini Mali sculptures.  They were exhibited in the Zoo from the 22 September to the 15 October 2012. Some amazing artwork. Well done kids.

The elephants were all displayed at the Carousel Park in the Melbourne Zoo – unfortunately not the best place for photography and we only had 30 minutes – but we wanted to show them all to complete our Mali collection. (You can find all the big Mali in the city sculptures here: Part 1 – Part 2 – Part 3).

The 55 Mini Malis are now back in their schools for permanent display … when you have a great picture in their “natural” environemnt let us know. We would love to see them. Feel free to write a comment when you have some information about a Mali sculpture – we’d love to hear about our little artists thoughts and add the title and names to each elephant.
