Elephants are our friends. After an elephant dies it devotes its ivory tusk to us so we can make these Buddhist statues and let the love of religion arise in our people. So we believe that the elephants themselves should feel happy and joyful that they left their tusks for us.

WHO SAID IT? A wealthy Beijing Business Man who invested a fortune in ivory.
