Prathida: "Wisdom from the Forest"

The elephant's wisdom and sensitivity emerge in every detail of this original composition, says the Novica Web site. "Prathida is an optimistic Asian elephant with a talent for abstract visions, exemplified by the unpredictable and undulating brush strokes of this work. A combination of brown and black tones seems to defy the luminous essence of the white background."
