Clearly this elephant has seen enough! A special picture, on the one hand because of the unusual, humorous perspective, on the other hand because of the artist’s representation of the moment in which bright sunshine from the left meets the rough skin of the pachyderm. In the play of light and shadow, white and black tones, pink, taupe, brown and other colors more replace the usual gray of the elephant skin and offer the eye a very special, fleeting snapshot.
