Artist's Description

Went to watch an elephant show in Thailand, they are so clever to do all the tricks they perform, such as shooting hoops and playing soccor but most of all, painting.

I know some people are against these type of animal keeping but in this case it is a win win situation for the trainers and the elephants.

You see most of the trainers used to be opium growers, until it was banned by the government and so they had to find another means of earning money because being an opium farmer used bring them in a nice profit.

These paintings done by the elephants are sold to tourists along with many other things there and all the profits go towards the keeping of the elephants and also the farmers. The sorounding farm land is also used to grow food for them!
