“Elephants are the most powerful land animals. They live a well-organized and complex social life
and are very sensitive to the intimate relationships between individual members of the herd. This
sensitivity, however, does not preclude the rivalry between males. In the higher animals dispute
may be over females or territories, or just for Sport. This duo is fighting for fun, but when elephants
are involved, great force is used, and damage can occur. I gave the painting a low view point
so that the elephants would loom like a powerful mountainous mass. From the periphery the
egrets scatter like dust from an explosion.”
