Artwork by Christian Montenegro for Jose Saramago's 'The Elephants Journey'. The story is an enchanting mixture of fact (based on the true story of an Indian elephant that really did make this journey in 1551), fable and fantasy. Filled with wonderful landscapes and local colour, peppered with witty reflection on human failings and achievements, it is, in the end, about the journey of life itself.
