Artwork Description

Responsible for supplying the majority of opium to both camps of the Crimean War, this member of the landed gentry is managing to fritter away the remains of his estate despite the substantial income gleaned from his illicit activities. Charming and well mannered despite being severely histrionic, Mr. Oliphant fluidly conducts affairs throughout the world under the comforting umbrella of Pax Brittanica. Being an 8th degree mason, he also enjoys exceptional privileges ranging from skirting inspections on imports to being provided an audience with many invaluable functionaries in the Empire. An excellent rider, Mr. Oliphant enjoys fox hunting on his family estate when at home.

Can't take it seriously because Oliphant was in the Tolkien books as well as "Elephant" in afrikaans... I kept waiting for the punchline.

Cool story behind the picture. Sometimes I like the story that fed the inspiration better than even the artwork itself. In your case, it is a bravo scenerio in either event. . . . . Love it. Patter
