Elephants are majestic enough thanks to their sheer size. But artist Cindy Chinn has found another way to make them look just as awesome.
As part of a commissioned project for the California-based Epiphany Elephant Museum, artist Cindy Chinn has created a piece titled, “Elephant Walk”, in the form of a miniature graphite carving. The carvings have been made on the tip of a carpenter’s pencil and feature trees dotted to foliage detail and a trio of elephants proudly walking in the front. Chinn used a magnifying lamp and trinocular microscope to aid in the fine detailing.
