shri-gaja small copy 2

This drawing was part of my final exhibition when I graduated with my Master of Fine Arts degree. “Shri-Gaja”, Lady Laxmi’s elephant, is the name given this divine elephant during Hindu prayer. He may also be referred to as Megha, meaning “cloud.”  It is believed that when this divine animal is called upon, it can conjure rainfall.
