The painting is based on memories I have from a trip to Africa. Botswana is like how the adventurers discovered it: wild and vast, with an abundance of wildlife.

We did a four-day trip on the back of an elephant, watching wildlife. (This is a different experience than from a four-wheel drive vehicle.) Our elephants were tame and trained to do their job.

In Kruger National Park (South Africa), elephants are too abundant and numbers are killed regularly to save habitat for other wildlife. Indeed, those giants can destroy complete areas, getting down lots of trees to reach the leaves. When a group is killed, they save the babies, which are sent to zoos all over the world.

The manager of our elephant camp got seven of those calves to train them to later do the job with tourists on their back. So we were always surrounded by those youngsters, which was great when we didnít see other wildlife.

The four days in the company of those babies gave me the big desire to portray the relationship of an elephant cow and her calf. The result is this painting.
