»Michael Rothman DescriptionThis image is the result of a commission by the New York Times for its Week In Review section, prior to the 2000 U.S. Presidental election. The painting is composed of a Donkey and an Elephant ""welded" together anatomically. As such, this transgenic animal is really a deliberate chimera functioning as piece of editorial illustration. At the time, the author of the accompanying article made a number of assertions virtually equating the broad and overarching agendas of the two major American political parties. Interested individuals might disagree with the author's positions when they are examined through the lenses of 20/20 hindsight.
