Yücel Kale has worked in various styles and techniques such as carved precious stones, carved glass, and copper, always infusing his works with a handmade quality, and care for the detail. This piece is made from elaborately carved precious Ruby-Zoisite, and this stone's celadon like color excites the artist to create an elegant, sinuous form. For the artist, the elephant represents abundance, stability, loyalty, reliability and determination, informed by art history and eastern cultures' reverence for it.
