Guaranteed to bring a smile to most people's lips, this nine feet wide wall hanging of a juvenile elephant playfully trailing her mother, radiates a childlike wonder in nature. Swatches of multicoloured embroidered pieces of cloth are expertly joined into the final resulting likeness, against a contrasting brown background.

Patchwork is distinguished by the use of strips of coarse cloth to cover the joints between the different pieces, and also to hide the stitches.
