“Let a Person Walk Alone With Few Wishes, Committing No Wrong, Like an Elephant in the Forest.”
- Author unknown
Africa’s wild animals are a constant source of inspiration and for me elephants symbolise Strength, Solitude, sense of loyalty to the family and Intelligence. Looking into the eye of an elephant, one sees Wisdom beyond our understanding.
I sketched this young elephant (Elephantidae Loxodonta) on a visit to the Elephant Sanctuary Hartebeespoort Dam in the North-West Province of South Africa, where they provide a “halfway house” for young African elephants in need of a temporary home.
