The image is taken from the original engraving that pays homage to this iconic African species. The accent is on the elephant’s tusks which are finished with gold metal leaf. The red spots recall the sacrifice of elephants for the pure greed of man in possessing ivory ornamental objects.
This print is part of a limited edition of 100 pieces and the metal leaf has been individually inserted by hand on each piece. The gold leaf, therefore, takes a different shape on the tusks which reflect the light in each copy differently.
