Elephant with Black Arabesque Saddle
Ceramic sculpture of an elephant with raised trunk. Hand built hollow out of stoneware clay, and decorated with transfers of leaves and flowers under glazing suggestive of antiques in a matte olive/cream and touches of turquoise. The ears and saddle have been carved with arabesque patterns. Glazed in charcoal black over the saddle and outlining the ears. This area is textured and treated to look antiqued. Signed, "Sullivan". I advise keeping this indoors. 13" long x 7" wide x 18" tall.
