iomart Group purchases Elephant at star studded London Elephant Parade auction

2nd July 2010 · Press Releases

Life-sized elephants designed by Scottish artist Jack Vettriano and Glasgow web hosting company Easyspace have helped a conservation charity raise more than £1 million pounds at a celebrity auction in London.

Hollywood stars Goldie Hawn and film-star turned socialite Elizabeth Hurley watched as Jack Vettriano’s elephant – based on his famous Singing Butler painting – attracted the highest bid of £155,000. Easyspace’s elephant ‘Cosmos’ – which was created by students at Glasgow Metropolitan College – raised £7000 having been purchased by the brand’s parent company iomart Group. 

‘Cosmos’ will go on display at iomart Group’s headquarters at the West of Scotland Science Park once it is transported back to Scotland. It has previously been on display at Glasgow’s Kelvingrove Art Gallery & Museum.

The Elephant Family hope to raise over £2M for their campaign to save the Asian elephant from extinction from the sale of the 258 elephants that graced the streets of London.
