Description

Here, Elwes depicts himself on-board ship dressed in his distinctive black-and-white checked trousers, seated on a chicken coop (ship’s provisions). Cattle are eating hay on the deck and a tropical Scarlet Macaw sits near Elwes’ shoulder. The mainsail is lashed to the mast between two early air conditioning funnels. It is a calm day.
