Artist's Description

Baby Elephant , born in Sydney, Australian, Zoo !
The papers had some lovely photos with the story.
So, a few days kater I decided to make up my own
drawing.
While I was drawing, with my radio on, a few days after
the birth. A news reader started relating a story. that
the baby had fallen imto the deep end of their swimming
pool, and all the Elephants had rushed to the edge of the
pool,making very loud. distressed calls, and trying
desperate, but futile efforts to save it.
Until some attendants got in the water, and with quite
some difficulty, managed to push the baby down to the
shallow end, where it was finally reunited with it’s mother.
And all the Elephants huddled around. obviously very
pleased, and relieved.
I had come up with the idea for this picture. as there had
been a pic reasonably similar to mine in a news paper.
And I had chosen that scenario, as It seemed so full of
love and joy.
And was well into it, when the srory was announced…

I Dedicate this to Mothers and the children they love.
