The Elephant Rider is a beautiful addition to Ardmore's Rider series. Sculptor Alex Sibanda has drawn inspiration from traditional Zulu attire and Herd Boys and conjured an exquisite creation of an elephant and its rider as well as his genet companion. There are a multitude of details to feast the eye, including the addition of a monkey atop the riders' parasol.
Zinhle Nene has taken the expression that masterful Alex has sculpted and added to it with his phenomenal brushwork. The artists employ all their skills to embody the elephant's wonderful expression, which is then coupled with intricate design work on the saddle cloth.
The elephant rider is a truly calssic Ardmore work of Art.
