Large (21 1/4" by 30 1/4" plus 3 1/2" mat and gold frame) highly detailed drawing of a royal Indian elephant festooned with festive "hat", bells and rug, seen in profile, and surrounded by a decorative floral border. This is classic Indian art executed in a traditional style, though I believe it is of fairly contemporary age. The silk is backed by rather cushy, soft material. Frame is in good condition with minor wear. The art itself has a few very small abrasion marks and losses due to drying of the gouache, especially the white gouache. I can send closeups of those flaws, but they are lost in the overall composition and in my opinion wouldn't affect your ability to present and enjoy this piece of handiwork, which someone in Indian worked many hours to create, I would suspect!
