Baby Elephant

I have had this map in my collection for some time, I believe it dates from the early part of the 20th Century, circa 1930. It has a few little blemishes and foxing marks and a lovely bright colouring.
I have mounted the map onto mount board and gessoed the surface to protect the paper and give it "tooth" ie something for the paint to hold onto.
My baby elephant calf has been painted in acrylic paints and inks in such a way that glimpses of the map beneath peek through.
The painting is sold unmounted and unframed and is available from Artfinder - a direct link is available from the links page.
