Wee Elephant with Spiral Saddle
Ceramic sculpture of a small elephant with raised trunk. Hand built hollow out of stoneware clay, and carved with a decoration sourced from saddle surfaces of feathered arabesques. The ears and saddle have a transfer design on them. Glazed in charcoal black and turquoise that breaks gold and turquoise in places, the main surface of the body is covered in a olive green transfer design of leaves, arabesques and lotus flowers. This area is textured and treated to look antiqued. Signed, "Sullivan". I advise keeping this indoors. 15" long x 7" wide x 13" tall.
