Fare Thee Well but Farewell Not

All things to nothing descend,
Grow old and die and meet their end...
Nor long shall any name resound
Beyond the grave, unless 't be found
In some clerk's book, it is the pen
Gives immortality to men...*

or elephants!!!
okay, I just added this one.

*Master Wace (1100 - 1175) - from his Chrinicles of the Norman Dukes. Found on the chart of Harold F Unstott (1907 - 1922)

Elephant Herd. Pigment and India ink on 19"x24" Bristol Board. 

All the elephants in the world cannot satisfy man's senseless and selfish desire for ivory.
Please do not buy anything, worship any idol or use any gadget made of ivory.
Stop the elephants from vanishing.

A very special remembrance tribute to my beloved sister Leah, who passed this earthly life a little over a year ago. She loved elephants so much. Not a day passes by without me thinking of her and feeling her love. I love you, forever. Tsup!

Fare thee well!
