Sculpture of Baby Elephant with Persian Gold Pattern
Ceramic sculpture of an elephant with raised trunk. Hand built hollow out of stoneware clay, and carved with a decoration of ornate arabesques and lotus flowers. The ears are a sand colour and saddle is glazed in a charcoal. The body reminds me of a worn Persian carpet with gold, charcoal and a touch of turquoise here and there. Be sure to look at the detail photos of this piece, it is rich and fascinating, if more subtle than the others in this series. Signed, "Sullivan". I advise keeping this indoors. 12" long x 6" wide x 15" tall. Luxurious feel.
