remarkably or impressively great in extent,
size, or degree.

****

Forty-seven years ago this month 

I purchased this painting in Alice Springs.

The Northern Territory’s

Ormiston Gorge

was one of the

late Henk Guth’s

favourite subjects.

However, Guth was a prodigious artist,

probably painting this in 30 minutes,

and this is probably worth little more

than the $150 I paid for it,

even though the artist died in 2002.

For me it is priceless.

FOWChallenge-Patriarch

~~~~~

patriarch

a system of society or government in which
the father or eldest male is head of the family
and descent is reckoned through the male line.

****

An elephant family is just the opposite

of this definition of patriarch.

The two smallest elephants in this group

may or may not be male.

The rest would be female with the matriarch

usually being the largest in the group.

Male elephants are sent packing to live

with other bachelors at around

three years of age.
