In 2023 and 2024 Little Ray’s Exhibitions is releasing 3 brand new outdoor exhibits featuring world class climbable sculptures with thought provoking, beautiful educational information panels.
These incredible exhibits will be available with or without a live animal component suitable for smaller indoor spaces.
Wonder Doesn’t Stop At Sight!
Our outdoor statue exhibits are an incredible way to add an element of wonder to your outdoor space, but, in most exhibits that wonder stops at the barriers surrounding them. Little Ray’s is all about engagement. We want to make sure the wonder does not stop at that barrier – so we made our outdoor exhibits climbable! Reinforced statues allow children to set their imagination free by allowing them to interact with and touch the statues in our exhibits.

Three Concepts in the Works
We are currently developing three unique outdoor exhibits. Two that compliment on our existing indoor displays and one that is brand spanking new.
Wildlife Rescue is a world class indoor exhibit currently in our rotation that is available for 5,000 to 15,000 square foot indoor space and is now going to be available as an outdoor exhibit theme. Wildlife Rescue will feature 12 to 15 detailed sculptures showcasing species of animals that have been pushed to the brink of extinction and have been successfully established in human care to the point they have been reintroduced to their natural ranges.
Tiny Giants is a brand new exhibit theme and will highlight how some of the smallest species of animals in the world survive in their space and how they are truly titans to other animals in their ecosystem. It will feature 12 to 15 blown up sculptures of these tiny giants done with amazing detail and include some sculptures to highlight the actual size differences between the smallest and largest members of their families.
This was our first major exhibit that toured internationally and was just re-done as a 5,000 to 10,000 sq ft indoor exhibit and we are now releasing an outdoor version. It highlights amazing defences utilized by the animal kingdom with modules on armour, venom, poison, camouflage and more with 12 to 15 world class sculptures and thought provoking interpretive panels.
