The Mother-and-Child family of elephants is a gentle work of sculpture. The carving tells the story of a parent and child travelling together with the underlying theme of one generation passing on to another. The piece portrays meanings of love and nurture, a togetherness that unites this family of elephants. In this animal cast, the artist-jeweller has employed both artificial and natural elements to create a charming and touching work of art. His craftsmanship and use of gemstones combined with titanium that has not been embellished in any way, produce a natural and heartfelt story of this family of wandering elephants.
