3. The final image on this page is a poster for an art exhibition in Germany.

Patrick Moriarty is from Southend, Essex and the next major town is called Basildon. Basildon is twinned with the city of Heiligenhaus, Germany. The artists in each town contributed artworks for an initiative called "Art Beyond Borders". The initiative encourages cultural understanding. The Basildon artists invited Patrick to contribute an artwork to the exhibition in Germany. The towns of Mansfield (UK) and Meaux (France) also contribute to the exhibition which encourages a cultural exchange of ideas and understanding. The event in Germany was called Neanderland Museumnacht. There was an official catalogue for the exhibition which included all the artists and artworks. Patrick and his paisley elephant print were included in the catalogue.
