I believe there are two types of elephants, The one that runs around the wilds of Africa that you hope you don't run into while they are cranky, then there is the Indian beastie that you find across Asia. The second type are the ones you find in zoos, parades and circuses. I can only imagine how long it would take to paint and prepare an elephant for a ceremony in India and I wonder how cooperative they are. An elephant with his trunk up is considered lucky for some reason. One thing that is for sure, is I will be doing a lot more creative work with these fantastic creatures.
