Mutual respect by JanneO Mutual respect by JanneO
This one I took on our mini safari to see trained monkeys, water buffalos and elephants during our visit in Phuket, Thailand.

"Elephants and mahouts are like brothers, parents and children, and best friends to each other. We must work as a team.''

Karen Mahouts take care of elephants in Thailand and in many cases these men have been with the animal for most of their lives.
The Karen are regarded as the best handlers of elephants due to their relaxed temperament ad their culture includes hundreds of years of experience working with and training elephants.

Hope you like it!

Well said on the description, I agree "Elephants and mahouts are like brothers, parents and children, and best friends to each other. We must work as a team.''
This work really gives a message that human and animals works in mutual respect and it truly makes a story behind,we can see a strong bond between the Karen and the elephant. In terms of the digital work, the effect of the shadows and light contrasted each other works really well and gives a realistic feel, especially the light cast on the elephant's head and ears, magnificent textures of the skin. The almost ancient looking brownish background complement the Karen and elephant really well. The composition puts the viewer like witnessing the emotional scene. Great colours and unique. Well done.
What do you think?

So wonderful! It seems to be a oil-painture. The colours are very fine, you choosed natural colours, it could also be the shine of the evening desert. Very great, I find, are the lights on the elephant and the alive-looking fabric of the man. The position of man to elephant is fantastic! I can imagine what the man might feel, and what the elephant might think.
Thank you for sharing :heart:
