Of elephants and men

 

EXHIBITION  IN THE CASTLE

 

 

 

 

Asian elephants are going through a tough time. The rapid growth of the human population on this continent nibbles inexorably away at their habitat. They find it increasingly difficult to survive in the wild. Unfortunately, encounters with humans are often violent and end up working against this magnificent beast. When domesticated and used as a working animal, it can no longer compete with industrial machines.

Yet, the historical relationship between Man and Elephant is deeply rooted in Asian culture: a long history made of friendship ​and domination, an ancestral working relationship, based on mutual knowledge and trust,  feeding many myths and legends.

For more than six months, Jean-François Mutzig followed the trail of elephants and their mahouts in countries where the Asian elephant still survives. He bears witness to their current situation in this heartfelt report.
