‘The voiceless elephant’ is an original painting by Svetlana Yakova.


The center of this painting is a blue elephant without tusks depicted in a minimalist manner. This symbolic choice of depicting the elephant without tusks has a message that represents the idea that humans are over-interfering and harming the lives of elephants. The title of the painting strongly reflects the message and highlights the voicelessness of elephants as a symbol of the neglect and interference of humans. The landscape around the elephant is created with minimal details that provide simplicity and focus on the central figure.
