Description

Artist Statement: "We are trying to revisit the story of the four harmonious friends. An elephant standing under a fruit tree carrying a monkey, a hare and a bird on top of each other. The scene refers to a legend, which tells that four animals were trying to find out who was the oldest. The elephant said that the tree was already fully grown when he was young, the monkey said that the tree was small when he was young, the hare said that he saw the tree as a sapling when he was young and the bird claimed that he had excreted the seed from which the tree grew. So the bird was recognized by the other animals as the oldest, and the four animals lived together in co-dependence and cooperation, helping each other to enjoy the fruits of the tree."
