Original oil painting by Sarah Soward. Oil on canvas. 36x36 inches, unframed. The canvas is stretched on 1.5 inch stretcher bars and is gallery wrapped.

Ceres is part of the Stellae Errantes (Wandering Stars) series. As a deity, Ceres is a goddess of agriculture and fertility. As a dwarf planet, Ceres exists in an asteroid belt.  In the painting, all of these aspects are represented by having a mother elephant walking across farmland with elephant calves. 

Because Ceres a dwarf planet, the elephants in this piece are Asian elephants, rather than African elephants. All my paintings of dwarf planets feature Asian elephants, with their smaller ears and petite tusks.

This is a great example of where contemporary wildlife art meets Surrealism.

Please keep fine art and prints out of direct sunlight and UV light.
