Elephant Rider
Artists across the ages have depicted Indian elephants and their riders on all sorts of objects and for all sorts of occasions. My elephant rider sits atop a majestic beast entrusted with a gold scepter and draped in the finest gold-embroidered silk. Ever was it thus in the world of art and, in the historical world, for special occasions anyway. I like to think that this one is going to a wedding.
