On the reverse, an Elephant is depicted with its calf as it strolls through the African savanna. Great attention to detail is displayed in the form of the texturing that is applied to represent the hides of the animals, in addition to the close proximity that the calf keeps to its mother, who watches diligently over it. Trees are seen in the background, fashioned in the exact likeness of the thorn trees that are scattered throughout the grasslands, with birds illustrated in the sky above. The stunning illustration is encapsulated by the series title, the animals name, and the weight and purity.
