Dang, I flunked art as a high school freshman (really). If I'd had an elephant handy I could have gotten an A.
It could be anyone? I guess you think they all look the same, huh? You're such a speciesist.
It totally is a self-portrait, though. Elephants are such narcissists. I used to live with this one, he was all "mrrrrrrrm! mrrrrrrrr!" like it was all about him, you know?
I'm assuming it's faked, until some elephant behaviourist shows up here and says it's real, but I'm charmed by it anyway. In fact the sweetest bit is the elephant arriving carrying its paintbox in front of it so demurely, like an elegant finishing school girl with a handbag.
This is one of the most incredible things I have ever seen!
I'm thinking it's faked. The trunk pretty consistently has a bend where a human elbow would be. Also, there's a cut where the brush runs out of paint.
