Eclectic Curiosity

The art of elephants. Elephants are apparently very fond of paint and canvass. Their works are increasingly becoming sought after, both by those wishing simply to support these threatened creatures and by those who seriously collect art. A display of paintings can be found at Novica.

The elephants, it turned out, loved to paint – apparently an extension of their natural tendency to doodle on the ground with sticks and pebbles. The resulting art has created a sensation in the art world, sparking the interest and support of art critics, collectors, and conservationists alike. By making the elephants and their beautiful art widely accessible to the general public, we hope to help raise awareness, encourage conservation, and generate significant funds to help support the elephant sanctuaries.
