Bob and Betty Rabago of Tucson, AZ commissioned Kenyan King. They are elephant figure collectors and they wanted something very different. They had a lot of gray elephants and they asked, "What could you do differently?" I said "What about a Kenyan elephant?" After the animals bathe, they dust themselves by picking up the soil in their trunk and spraying that soil all over themselves. Instead of being gray elephants they end up being rusty orange because of the iron-based soils of that area. They do this not specifically to color themselves but to protect themselves from the ravaging insects of the African savanna.
