Finalist

Ink on paper, 95cm x 130cm
 
The plight of the African Elephant, the world’s largest land mammal, has reached a critical point as wild numbers continue to decline. In the 250 hours it took to create this ink-stippling portrait, another 1000 elephants will have been poached for their ivory tusks. More magnificent skulls littering the landscape!
