Powerful, magnificent elephant fine art prints are overwhelming.
I have always been attracted to the elephants figure ever since I was a kid and went to the zoo for the first time. A short time after that, I saw Disney’s “Mowgli” feature animation and was amazed by the rhythm of their marching compass along with the music.
Elephants are pachyderms that inhabit some areas of both Africa and Asia.
They are somewhat descendant-cousins of the Mammals and Mastodons that we love to see in the “Ice Age” movies.
The male African elephants is the largest terrestrial animal and its “nose” long trunk is used for breathing (that wouldn’t be difficult to figure), grabbing water, food and other stuff.
In order to control temperature, elephants flap their ears, which are larger in Africa than Asia. They are vegetarians and prefer to live near water.
Their species is very important to the environment balance (as you can read here) and their intelligence has been compared with that of primates and cetaceans, showing self-awareness and empathy for the death of other individuals of their kind.
The African species is marked as vulnerable while the Asian type is classified by authorities as endangered.
Ivory trade is the worst threat against elephant species and its consumption should be avoided and considered a crime worldwide. Other threats include the destruction of their natural environment and mankind proximity.
Elephants are used for work in Asia, which it’s not dangerous if the animals are well treated. They have been used for cavalry warfare in the past. Zoo and circus captivity is a matter of controversial debate.
The elephants figure is highly appreciated and has always been a popular motif for various artistic and religious manifestations.
