A gracious camel at a circus in Zacatecus, Mexico was the inspiration. He and his mate have been transported to the freedom of the Sonora Desert and the Sierra Madres Mountains. Adrinkra symbols of West Africa adorn the borders. The heart symbol reminds us to learn from the past and allow all species freedom. The ram horn symbol represents the strength and humility projected by the camel so inhumanly subdued by encumbrances.
