BitTrunks will launch the world’s first NFT art made by an elephant. The announcement was made by BitTrunks, the NFT branch of Elephant Art Online. The first-ever NFT elephant artwork will be drawn by Tunwa (TW), a 7-year-old elephant who was born and raised at the Maetaeng Elephant Park & Clinic in Chiang Mai, Thailand.
Tree of Life will be the world’s first-ever NFT art made by an elephant. The NFT will include photos and videos of TW using the paintbrushes with his trunk under the guidance of his keeper during the process of creating the Tree of Life painting. The NFT will be accompanied with outtakes of TW painting, TW interacting days today like with other elephants in his habitat, and a digitally verifiable certificate of authenticity of the painting (QR Code).
You can place your bids for the 1-of-1 TW Tree of Life item on the BitTrunks page on OpenSea. The auction is scheduled for October 28, 2021, at 9:30 AM ET and to close on November 4, 2021, at 12 PM EST. The final winner of the bid will not only get the ownership of the NFT but also the tangible canvas of the painting and a certificate of authenticity encased in an attractive plexiglass frame.According to Dwain Schenck, co-head of BitTrunks, “We are thrilled to present to collectors and investors alike the first tokenized painting made by the most talented and artistic elephant in the world.”
He further added, “This marks a first in the NFT space for the world’s largest land mammal to create a non-fungible token whose qualities rivals that of a human artist. This is also a historically unique investment opportunity where a portion of the sales proceeds will help support the elephant park where TW lives alongside more than 80 other elephants, as well as the lifesaving medical clinic run by the park.”
