A friend sent a link to me yesterday to a You Tube video featuring artistic elephants. I was enthralled as I watched these gentle giants creating fascinating "self portraits", yet part of me remained skeptical. After visiting snopes. com, I was thrilled to learn that the fascinating video was legitimate.
The number of Asian elephants are also diminishing. Groups such as the Asian Elephant Arts and Conservation project, is dedicated to help preserve the species and is one of the largest groups to promote elephant art as a fund raising project.
AEACP is a non-profit organization working with domesticated Asian elephants. It raises funds through both donations and the sale of the elephant's amazing artwork.
So touched by their horrific backgrounds and loving personalities, ExoticWorldGifts.com now supports, "Starving Elephant Artisans" by selling their paintings so they can continue to have a new life in Thailand.
Watch this elephant, rescued from abusive treatment in Burma, now paints an amazing self portrait. You'll be amazed at how his talent unfolds.
Were you fascinated by this "talent" and enthusiasm which was demonstrated by the artist? Leave a comment and talk about your reaction.
