About This Image

With his long trunk curled around a branch of a tree and his tail swishing so as to 'ghost' in the image one wonders whether this elephant is having a snack or showing off for the camera. The rider seems calm and completely unaware of the photographer.

Shipping and insurance costs will be added to the price and must be paid for by the buyer. Pennsylvania buyers must pay appropriate local sales tax. International clients are responsible for their VAT and other custom's oriented charges.
