This is yet another painting from the Elephant Cycle created in 2001. The painting is 3 meters wide and it portrays Karolina Pernar, my unfortunate love, patting salamander and herself, while I am standing there as an elephant. Pero Smiljanić, a merchant, art collector, and dandy from Bjelovar, owns the painting (which I found out accidentally). Even though I have no idea how the painting ended with him, I am glad that it is as far away from me as possible because it reminds me of one really unpleasant period. I came to realize that one doesn’t need war, sickness or natural disaster to be miserable; the woman who you love and who betrays you is more than enough!
