Meet Impilo, a young female elephant with a desire for change and to inspire you to be a part of it. Impilo is isiXhosa for “life” and “health”. Here, each brushstroke is a visual prayer for a new story to be co-written for elephants and humanity as a non-separate whole. And you can play your part in this story too! By buying this artwork, you are celebrating elephants and our unique relationship with them, as well as bringing life and colour into your home or workplace. You are also supporting an emerging South African artist who would love to create more of this important work.
