Really emotive, engaging work. Something "special" about this I can't quite put my finger on -- perhaps it's the wondering if he's about to laugh or cry? How powerful the closed eyes are, here! Love it! V

Li van Saathoff replied:

Many thanks, Lin Haring. In fact he was playing at this moment: he closed his eyes, waiting for the elephant to touch him moved by the waves. Of course he did know, it'll will touch him again and again, but every time he pretended to be surprised. At least he was proud to know, it'll function likewise a perpetuum mobile. :) Thank you for passing by with your kind comment! :)

Like sooo many of your images, this too is just wonderful (wunderbar). It conjures up the innocence and magic of childhood.
