Inspired by Sir David Attenborough's wildlife documentaries, this artwork depicts a small colony of bull elephants with a unique skill. They have learnt to lift their entire body weight on to their hind legs in order to reach the acacia pods high in the trees above them. It is truly a feat of balance and strength which will no doubt gain an evolutionary advantage.
Natural selection at its very best.
