Green Production Line
In order to reduce our climate footprint all wooden frames sold at Korsbaek Visual are made of environmentally friendly material. For Korsbaek Visual only the best is good enough. I have specially selected handmade frames that are of the best quality on the market! The frames are made of solid wood and therefore appear more authentic and raw.
Printed on 230g matte enhanced paper specially selected by me for the best result and representation of an actual artwork. The production line is green and plants more trees than are cut down. EU certified and FSC approved. In the category Art / High end.
At the heart of the commitment to excellence is dedication to using only the finest materials combined with expert craftsmanship, resulting in frames that are not only visually stunning, but built to last for many years.
Over the past decade elephant numbers have declined by 62% and the giant animals could be mostly extinct by the end of the next decade. It is estimated that around 100 African elephants are killed every day by poachers seeking ivory, meat and body parts.
An insatiable desire for ivory products in the Asian market makes the illegal ivory trade extremely profitable and has led to the slaughter of tens of thousands of African elephants.
As of 2011 the world is losing more elephants than the population can reproduce, threatening the future of African elephants on the continent. Transfrontier Africa, runs a research camp in the 52,000 hectare Balule Nature Reserve in the Greater Krüger National Park, South Africa, which is responsible for the efforts to be made in connection with animals that e.g. is injured in connection with poaching, or arranges to bring escaped animals back to the reserve.
ART IS LIVING
Due to the large increase in poaching Transfrontier Africa formed the anti-poaching unit "Black Mamba APU" back in 2012. It's a group of more than 36 local women who are used as protection against poaching. The Black Mamba acts as the Balule Nature Reserve's foremost and most important defense against poachers.
Korsbaek Visual has chosen with great confidence in Aalborg Zoo to donate 100 % of the profits from "The Mighty Elephants" to their African Wildlife Support, because by inspiring and advising people they help ensure better conditions around animals and nature, and thus help animals where the suffering is greatest to a life free from squalid conditions and protection from poaching.

KORSBAEK VISUAL FOR THE ELEPHANTS
"I have always had a desire to use my art to make a difference. Climate change challenges our relationship with nature and raises questions about our responsibility for the state of nature. The man has always tried to influence and exploit the nature around him in order to survive, for example by lighting fires and making bonfires, by cultivating and harvesting the land, developing hunting methods and keeping cattle. Today, it has developed into man who has seriously begun to utilize nature's resources and energy to create greater wealth and prosperity for himself.
Modern society's exploitation of resources is a major threat to biological diversity. The remaining populations of elephants, rhinos and many other species of large animals are under severe pressure and often in rapid decline due to poaching and habitat loss.
In the last 40 years, human intervention in nature has halved the world's population of animals, plants and insects. The fight against poachers can only be won through education of the local community. This is where the Black Mamba APU women make a significant difference. Culturally speaking they have far greater credibility than the men, and they do not allow themselves to be bribed".
