This art, "African Elephant", originally painted by Dave Bartholet, combines a beautiful and powerful elephant with the wood to create a dramatic and unique art piece. The natural coloration of the boards shine through the art to blend with the image and helps this become interesting and inviting decor for your walls. 


    One-of-a-kind Wood Art 

    African Elephant is a collage of individual wood boards, giving it grains and knots unique to every piece. These boards are then secured together using two wood strips running along the back of the art. In addition to tightly securing the art together, these wood strips also allow the piece to sit slightly off your wall and help it naturally frame itself.

    When we craft this piece, we use no whites in the image, instead, we allow the natural coloration of the wood to take its place so that the beauty of the wood isn’t overtaken by the image. This creates an interplay of texture and color creating art that lives so naturally on the wood, you might think it grew there. 

    Indoor and Outdoor Safe Wall Art

    Since we use kiln-dried wood and all-weather UV-protected ink, you can accent any part of your indoor or outdoor living space with this art for years to come. 

    About the Artist

    Dave Bartholet, a self-taught artist, showed up on the planet in 1949.  Having spent his early childhood in Wyoming, his love for wildlife was forged from the get-go.  In 1971 he started his journey as a professional artist selling his original watercolors through galleries and eventually art shows throughout the west. 

    His loose style of watercolors has proven to be very popular with an estimated 100,000 households that collect his work. 

    Small Business Made 

    All of our products are made at our design & build studio at the foot of the cascades in Sisters, Oregon. The wood we use when crafting this wall hanging art is sourced from around the Northwest.

    Hanging hardware is included and the piece is ready to be hung up from the moment it arrives.
