When dealing with high-end decor, classic art is an obvious choice. Contemporary fine art photography is a favorite pick among art consultants and interior designers when filling rooms with minimal design. Each elephant image tells its own unique story, either as a statement or background piece. These monochrome elephant images make for the perfect accessory for any luxury space.
Choosing Elephant Images For Your Interior Design
Our black and white elephant pictures make a stunning, yet subtle addition to any room or also office. We know the common misconception that black and white photos are outdated or old-fashioned and have no place in modern design. Yes, black and white fine art photography make a very different statement than more colorful images. But it speaks volumes and also makes a bold addition to any interior design. When you’re choosing contemporary art for a higher-end space, black and white wall art photos should be at the top of your list because of their versatility and also timeless appeal.
Bright, colorful photos are great for more playful spaces. But when a photo is stripped of color, it allows for a more intense image. The photos are subdued, a classic statement to be made, especially upon the first impression. Black and white elephant images evoke a much deeper and also emotional connection.

The elephant is the largest land mammal. They can be found in a wide variety of habitats, including savannas, grasslands, forests, swamps, and also the desert. They can weigh up to 8,000 lbs and stand 10 to 13 feet tall at their tallest point! The elephant’s trunk is an amazing tool and also one of the most versatile organs among all mammals. It’s a combination of their upper lip and nose, and they breathe out of the tip of their trunk, as you can see in our photos. The trunk is so skilled that it can pick up a penny from the floor, but also pick up a large, heavy tree branch and fling it across the way. They use their trunks like we humans use our hands.
The effects of Climate Change on Elephants
As we create elephant artwork, we want to create awareness of how they are some of the most resilient creatures on earth. They eat a wide variety of foods and can live in dramatically different habitats across the span of one lifetime. Their brilliance can be seen across wildlife contemporary art photography collections on our site and also beyond. While these animals are resilient, they need to consume vast amounts of water on a daily basis to survive. With climate change, comes unpredictable weather and rainfall. Some months there is more than enough water, other months there is very little.
Even with this threat, poaching possesses the largest threat to them in both Africa and Asia. The good news is that humans are in total control of poaching when we are not in total control of climate change so efforts can be made to stop the inhumane hunting of elephants.
Elephant Images as an Alternative to Elephant Tusks
If you love the elephant, you’ve probably seen many elephant images sporting large, creme-colored tusks. This ivory is essential to the elephant’s survival, yet they are being hunted and also poached from the wild at alarming rates. The ivory tusks evolved from large teeth that would stick out past the elephant’s mouth. Over time, they grew into the large tusks we see today. They are made up of a dense, bony tissue called dentin (the same material that makes up human teeth). Also, just like human teeth, the tusks are wrapped in enamel to protect them from external conditions. Photos of this amazing animal make an amazing gift as well.
- All African elephants have tusks, while only the male Asian elephant has tusks.
- With the evolution of the elephant’s tusks, they’ve given these incredible animals an evolutionary advantage. Tusks allow them to dig, lift objects, gather food, strip bark from trees, and also defend themselves. The tusks also protect their trunks which they use to eat, drink and breathe from (along with many other things).
- They can be dominant on one side the same way humans can be left or right-handed and left or right-footed. We have learned so much while taking photos of these grand creatures.
- When elephants meet or greet each other, they engage in a “trunk-shake” the same way humans would engage in a hand-shake.
The Illegal and Immoral Poaching of Elephants
Whether jewelers and ivory collectors around the world want to admit it or not, a dead elephant is behind every piece of ivory. Every year more than 20,000 are killed for their tusks. The tusks then go on to be traded illegally on the black market. Despite measures being taken by governments, wildlife charity organizations, celebrity advocates, and international relief efforts, ivory still remains in high demand in several parts of Asia. Collecting black and white elephant images is a much safer bet. Which image in our collection is your favorite?
Elephants like to live in small groups led by an elderly female called a cow. In elephant families, females are the leaders. Most of the males live together as bachelors separate from the females. They are known to develop deep familial bonds and also lifelong friendships. That contributes to their health and well-being in similar ways to the human need for social connection and affection. Elephants have the longest gestation period of any other mammal (18-22 months). Ladies, can you imagine being pregnant for almost two years? And when their babies are born, newborns are roughly 3.5 feet tall and 220 lbs on average!
The Elephant’s Relationship to Humans
Elephant images have appeared throughout history for the last several thousand years. They have been considered sacred and have even been used for ceremonial purposes in Asian cultures for as long as records can show, in India, the Middle East, and the Asian Pacific. They have not been domesticated, but they’ve been subjected to selective breeding, the same way that cows, horses, and dogs have been. Tames of Asian elephants were recorded to have been used in the Indus civilization way back in the 3rd millennium. There are elephant pictures in black and white dating back decades, and when they are used by humans, they build a very strong bond and have been known to take care of each other. The elephant as seen in elephant artwork remains a symbol of elegance and also power around the world.
How Can You Help Save the Elephants?
Most importantly, ever buy anything made of ivory in any part of the world. The elephant’s ivory tusks are deeply rooted and can only be removed when the animal is dead. It is inhumane and also wrong to kill an animal for its parts. One way to admire them without harming them is to purchase elephant images instead of tusks or trinkets. When you have monochrome elephant photos as stunning black and white wall art, you can showcase your admiration for this majestic animal while still respecting and preserving its life and legacy. A part of our mission when creating photography artwork is to build awareness around certain issues affecting wildlife today. A portion of the proceeds from all of our elephant images goes to charities supporting relief and sustainability for them. Let us know which elephant artwork is your favorite.
