One of the standout features of this painting is the Elephant King himself, who is being paraded around on the back of a rhino. He wears a magnificent crown, befitting of his status as king of the jungle. The crown is prominently displayed on an empty chair, symbolizing the reverence and respect that the other animals have for their leader. The words "Karibu Mzee Tembo" are written above the chair, which means "Welcome Elder Elephant" in Swahili. This adds an extra layer of depth to the painting, as it suggests that the Elephant King has a rich cultural heritage and is revered by many.

The Elephant King is a central figure in this painting, and his presence is felt throughout the scene.

The banner in the background further adds to the sense of occasion. It reads "Siku ya Kuzaliwa wa Mfalme tembo 9/9/1961", which translates to "Birthday of King Elephant 9/9/1961". This indicates that the party is being thrown in honor of the Elephant King's birthday, and that the animals have come from far and wide to pay their respects.
