Little One, baby elephant | Lucy Dickens Fine Art

Little One

Little One do you know that you are loved? You bring such joy to my heart, I will guide and protect you on this grand adventure in the wilderness. 

Heading out on safari in Kenya, I most wanted to see and experience baby elephants. I am so thankful to have seen many herds. Most of these had their little ones with them. In fact, most of the animals seen on safari all had young with them. What perfect timing for our journey, I was in Heaven! I have learned these incredible African Bush elephants, the largest land animals, are very sensitive and expressive. They are highly intelligent, possessing a variety of complex emotions and feelings, and have an incredible memory. 

Thankfully, we had the opportunity to witness this first hand with this sweet baby and her momma. They clearly give and received deep love. I have even heard that if a baby elephant complains, the entire family will go over to comfort it. With gratitude, I capture this special moment and share it with you.

Lucy’s Safari Adventures series will be unveiled at the Phoenix Zoo’s, “Art on the Wild Side” exhibition Feb 1 – May 31, 2020. Artists, Lucy Dickens, Joye DeGoede, and Anne Peyton will showcase their unique visions of wildlife and conservation in the Savanna Gallery, located in the Savanna Grill. Art will be available for purchase and zoo admission is required. A portion of the proceeds benefits the Zoo’s conservation initiatives. 

“Art on the Wild Side” is a great collaboration between The Arizona Center for Nature Conservation/Phoenix Zoo and select local artists to display their work in our new Savanna Gallery. This rotating exhibit enhances our guests’ experience to not only see live animals on Zoo grounds, but also be inspired by the beautiful artwork along the walls of the Gallery, helping us communicate the importance of national and international conservation efforts. Exhibited artwork embraces the mission of the Phoenix Zoo: to advance the stewardship and conservation of animals and their habitats while providing experiences that inspire people and motivate them to care for the natural world.”
