Ivory And Dust


Entering the park in Amboselli, we spotted this herd in the distance. I almost passed them up because I knew the big herds were heading into the hills and wanted to catch that crossing, but something told me to turn around. So glad I did. It was a small herd of what appeared to be all males. They kept guarding the elephant hidden in the back, would circle around him, and wouldn’t let him out front as if they were protecting him. This is very common with baby elephants, but you don’t see them do this with older members. He didn’t appear to be sick or injured so I’m not sure why they were doing it.

All artwork is offered as a limited edition. Rodney carefully selects each image and chooses a number of prints to make available for each image. This edition size is shared across all prints of an image. For example, if an edition is set at 25 prints there will never be more than 25 prints of that image (regardless of print size) so each individual work will retain its value over time.


As with most fine art, as an edition sells the prices increase. Later images in an edition will be priced higher.
