Carve sculptures and tricks out of pumpkins for Halloween
The massive pumpkin sculpture at the Bronx Zoo is designed and carved by Pumpkin Sculpt USA to bring public attention to the organization 96 Elephants. Every day 96 African elephants are shot down for their ivory and the aim is to support the legislation and to save and protect them.
The pumpkin carving templates are ephemeral art associated with charity.

These pieces are created by the experienced designers Sue Beatrice, Andy Gertler, Jenn Cook and Julia Jankowski. It took 18 hours from start to finish to finish the sculpture. The group of artists transform Halloween pumpkins into fine art. Pumpkin carving is a dynamic and voluntary activity through which huge, remarkable creations are made as eye-catchers for special occasions and festivals.
