Elephant Among the Cherries

An Elephant Among Cherries

Within sight of a smoking Mount Fuji, an Asian elephant emerges from a grove of cherry trees to take a drink.

Asian elephants are known to have lived up in China as recently as the Zhou dynasty period, though I don’t think their remains have been uncovered in Japan as of now. Nonetheless, I wanted to depict an Asian elephant in an environment that was recognizably Asian but different from the traditional jungle, so I picked the vicinity of Mount Fuji.
