Silk fabric with rayon thread embroidery 20' x 20"
My friend requested an elephant on a jacket I was embroidering for him. They stand for wisdom. I found a mama elephant online and traced her outline. She didn't have a nick in her ear but I saw a shadow and thought it showed character and wisdom so I left it. This is the first time I developed this style I am calling "spirit" animal. I liked his so much I did one on my jacket. Thanks Craig for suggesting the elephant!
These are embroidered on the arm of M-65 Viet Nam era army jacket.
