Elephant Takes a Stand
29 cm x 42 cm
Elephants are filled with such wisdom, pass knowledge on to each other and mourn over the skeletons of their dead. Seeing this photo of an orphaned elephant now living on a reserve (taken by 'Wigart Photography') I knew I had to draw it. It's pose seems to show defiance against all that has happened to it.
I'm a Manchester based artist only just starting to sell my artwork. My usual job is in environmental education with children and love that this competition is another way of spreading the word about our wildlife and their struggles.
