As with the elephant in the "African Animals" gallery, here I
honor the spirit of the elephant on this piece, showing the strength
of this magnificent animal as he comes towards the viewer. Again,
I would like to take this opportunity to mention that I do not
take the use of ivory for granted. I choose to use it as my canvas
for many reasons. I am inspired by the energy that I feel holding
and working in this spirit-filled material. I support conservation,
preservation, and legal efforts to maintain the health and future
of wild elephants.
