Painting - The Elephant by Clive Ankiewicz
Size: 830mm x 600mm
Medium: Oil on Canvas
So the Big 5 are not called the Big 5 because of their size! The Big 5 are five of Africa's greatest wild animals – lion, leopard, elephant, Cape buffalo and rhino.
The African elephant grows to 4 metre (15 feet) in height and can easily consume up to 200 kg or 440 lb of forage per day , drinking up to 190 litres of water. Elephants have a keen sense of smell, but their hearing and eyesight is not so good. Elephants mature at 20 years of age and can live as long as humans.
I am a self taught South African Artist. I admire good art and my favorite subject is "YESTERYEAR." I enjoy the classics, the cars, trucks and old buildings which are fast disappearing and in my art I would like to restore these past images in your mind, a heritage for our children, something for you to hang in your home with fond memories.
