Mum Ele oils on Canvas 2011 (30"x40") 74cmx103cm

The reality of nature, with her survival system within species, could allow for such a tremendous action scenes like this one I've painted to have taken place.

This scene is made up of a young bull Elephant who wonders off from the security of the herd only to be captured by four young male lions, these lions have been ousted from the pride, by their mother lionesses, because the mums have new young to feed.

On hearing the young bull Elephant's screams, Mum elephant charges into those young male lion's with her motherly force. Catching two of guard and catapulting them into the air, with the third scampering and the fourth just letting go of his death grip on the young bull's neck ready to scamper off himself.
