The Old Guard

'The Old Guard' is an original graphite pencil drawing on Stonehenge paper, created in a panoramic format. Highly detailed and realistic, it depicts a group of three elderly elephants standing together, close to a waterhole as a trio of egrets take flight in the background.

There is an element of serenity about this image. Every line, every wrinkle on each elephant's massive body reinforces their age and wisdom as they silently stand guard over the water.


Measuring approximately 20.5 x 13 inches, this drawing is presented in a white mount within a distressed silver gilt frame to a total size of about 28 x 20.5 inches, ready to hang. It is signed on the front and will be accompanied by a certificate of authenticity.
