Dubious Intoxication

Dubious Intoxication

Title: Dubious Intoxication

Description: “Dubious Intoxication” is based on an amusing incident possibly once had in the dry savannah in the north of Kenya in a place called Samburu. Why dubious, because an intoxicated elephant perhaps is not to be messed with in the wild, it would be very unpredictable indeed.This piece captures the legend of elephant getting intoxicated on fermented Doum Palm fruit (Gingerbread Fruit). An hilarious experience best viewed from a distance I should imagine. I will leave it up to you to decide if it is true or not.
