so amazing!! really cool -- i'm glad you looked up its veracity. i'm jealous too; though you're right, i'm sure he couldn't cut and paste and use photo shop!!

I saw this clip and heard them speculating about how you never really see the whole elephant---I guess the idea being that it could be fake. So...I dunno. It reminds me of a great kids book that I used to read my kids (from the first to the last kid) by Bill Peet: Ella. It's about an elephant who gets put in the zoo and is bored and discovers she can paint. I guess Ella came to life.

Jay are I thought the same thing as far it could easily be faked but snopes.com is a pretty reliable source and has a pretty good reputation at verifying & debunking stuff like this. You can see more of their paintings with this link.
