Elephant Paintings

Thanks to Keri at Sea, Sand and Shells for posting this.

Painting like this are being sold throughout Asia to save the elephant population.

I showed this to my friend Chau at work and she refuses to believe it. Now I have always been partial to elephants [see my elephant collection here], but did do a little research to confirm the validity of this incredible artwork.
