The Torchbearer

The male elephant seems to be carrying the setting sun on his back while the female is offering his some words of encouragement for carrying such a heavy load. The torchbearer is very appropriate since our behavior and indiscriminate killing of elephants for their tusks will eventually lead to the light being put out for humanity.
