2014 Snapshots

Tuesday, January 12

Bulky and Artistic.

Don’t you think this  painting is  great?  DSCF2407-r1Okay, okay  you’ve probably seen better artwork.    But what if I told you that these were done by this little (I mean big big) guy.   DSCF2395

DSCF2404-r1I never knew elephants could do this. 

I’ve never seen any elephant do this.  I was so impressed that day I actually cried. (yes Jane I am a crier).   DSCF2408

This painting  was also done by another elephant.  What’s even more impressive, the paper used is made of elephant dung.  All the elephants paintings are sold and the money is used to save the elephants here in Asia.

After seeing this I’m totally convinced that elephants are very very intelligent animals.

I am in love with elephants, friend...

I have figurines, even a little beeswax elephant, and many pictures.

I fell in love with them when I read (or watched?) that elephants cry because of their emotions. No other mammal besides humans and elephants do this. They also have a 'funeral' for their dead. And, they remember each other for years, just like we do old friends.

Thank you for sharing this!
