magic: an elephant painting an elephant

member of our weird magic family, Alon Avissar, recently presented us with these strange pictures from his excursion to thailand capturing an elephant that paints. If an elephant in thailand that can paint isnt enough magic, theres the fact that this elephant paints self portraits. final thought: somewhere in thailand an elephant is refining his skills in the fine arts, what are you doing today?
