A nurturing and protective elephant mother teaches her calf life skills such as finding the best plants for eating, how to navigate a variety of environments and how to defend against predators. Artist Vince Chavez's distinguished elephant pairing has been made from indigenous Zuni stone, a gorgeous variety of travertine from the lands at a Zuni Pueblo. Turquoise eyes are expressive and together, mother pachyderm and her calf are approximately 6" long, 2" wide and 2 3/4" tall. Their sweet trunks are communicative.
