“Elephant Artists”

behind barsMany of you probably have seen stories about the elephant artists of Thailand……
I found this wonderful article, it explains how they are “taught”……
To understand such coaching, one realizes the intelligence of these extraordinary beings. I wish one day, they will be given the chance to create what is in their own hearts and minds…….not the audience pleasing copy…..
Bless them all, I would love to paint beside one, one day in my lifetime.
Such beings have gone through centuries of abuse, centuries of enslavement, centuries of inhumane separation from the loving family bonds they need to thrive and nurture their young.
And yet, they choose to lift their trunks and paint to please man…..

Namaste,
