The "Warrior III" drawing was started in 2021 and completed in 2022 by artist Cherie L. Smittle. This piece features dotwork mandala and henna designs along with the mountain range of K2. All set inside an Elephant doing the Warrior III Yoga pose standing on top of a dotwork world positioned to show Pakistan and Nepal where K2 the mountain is.
About the artwork: The artist watched the Holiday movie Holiday in the Wild which inspired her to create a piece featuring an elephant. being passionate about mountains she thought it would be cool to add K2, the world's tallest mountain which is located in Pakistan and Nepal. That gave her the idea to have the elephant stand on the world positioned to both of those locations. As for the Warrior III yoga pose the artist felt like we need to be warriors for elephants and this is the most difficult of the Warrior poses. The triangles and circle help tie everything together.
Art with Heart : To further being Warriors for Elephants the artist will donate $5 to Sheldrick Wildlife Trust which is actually featured in the movie Holiday in the Wild.
