Mother Elephant and Calf (Laxodonta africana)

This sculpture depicts the gentle, nurturing nature of the mother as she waits patiently for her calf to catch up. The dominant female is known as the matriarch and it is she who keeps the herd under control and guides them to different feeding and drinking areas. They are exceptionally gentle and tactile for such large animals as anyone who has seen them with their young will acknowledge
