Animals are, of course, beings in their own right. However, in my imagination they take on different forms, from whimsical to dreamlike, to allies and friends. In the 1980s, I created a series of black and white animal linocuts in this vein.

Floral Elephants is one of these linocuts that I hand carved and hand printed in 1983. So it’s an original piece of artwork and not a reproduction. Though I had never had the chance to see elephants in their natural habitat, they were with me in my imagination. Here they have the amazing ability to stand on flowers!

The details:

Image Size: 3 ½” x 5”
Paper Size: 5 ½” x 6 7/8”
Number: 2 of 10 prints
Signed: Susan Barsel (Lily S. May’s birth name)
Dated: 1983

I printed Floral Elephants in black on off white thin Japanese paper. Three edges are feathered with the bottom original wavy paper edge. The brown that you see in the photo is a background sheet of paper placed to show you the actual edges of the print and is not part of the print itself.

Floral Elephants comes unframed, packed flat between 2 sturdy pieces of card board. I ship worldwide by Canada Post. For shipping costs outside Canada and the lower 48 states, please contact me before buying.
