I have been working on this piece for a couple of months and finally I completed this today right in time to submit for the CPSA International show. I thoroughly enjoyed working on this piece, which is part of my Origami Series of Still-life. The batik fabric is from India and so are the marble elephants. After doing a lot of cranes in my previous Origami works, it was refreshing model an elephant and include that in my still-life.
Elephants are one of my most favorite animals, they are one of the strongest animals in the planet yet very lovable and gentle by nature. Elephants are also considered as a power symbol of commitment, royalty & strength.
