"Grieving Together" Elephant Print

The Phase Shop


This variant is currently sold out

When a mother elephant has a miscarriage, scientists observe she often enters a period of despondency. She changes her behavior in such a way that even humans (an entirely different species) take notice, and say “something has happened.”
And in a matriarchal, elephant community, the grieving mother is not alone. Sisters, aunts, and others in the community have been known to surround her, stay beside her, and touch her trunk in what seem to be expressions of affection.
In the same way, this print was commissioned for #infantlossawareness and #pregnancyloss. For anyone who is grieving the loss of a child you were not given an opportunity to watch grow up, we stand with you. If you know someone who is grieving this loss, this print is one way to show you see the pain, you hurt with them, you stand by them, and will always remember.
