I always tell my husband that if I was in charge of the world — I’d make miniature elephants the size of those little miniature ponies that people have that are no bigger than a large dog… so people could have them as pets!

This was the coolest piece! You should also check out the other entries and winners from previous years. It’s the largest Art Prize in the world (250K I think?) and brings together art and the community! Way to go GR!

Yes…I have one just for elephants. Right after Nathaniel was born I kept seeing them everywhere – in artwork, books, toys, clothing, magazines, online, photographs of a friend’s vacation to Thailand. It was weird, and cool. Nathaniel is 2 and I still love them. :)

Heart-wrenching. http://www.cbsnews.com/8301-18563_162-57319021/tarra-and-bella-elephant-loses-mans-best-friend/

It is easy to anthropomorphize elephants.

It is amazing, beautiful, inspiring, and humbling. I can’t recommend it enough!
When the one guy puts a blanket on a baby elephant going to sleep – restored my faith in humanity.

My favorite animal is the Zebra. I am just amazed at their beauty. We went to the Bronx Zoo last weekend and they were as gorgeous as ever. Last year we saw a baby zebra there!

It´s about the friendship between an elephant and a girl. The illustrations are in pencil and a bit of red. If you like elephants penciled and sweet stories , I think you will love it… and your little girls too.

Not to mention mystical…Maybe I’ll call on my elephant-self the next time I’m having a stressful moment: ) Thank you for that break – it was much needed.

My very favorite. I had a stuffed one that played ‘You Are My Sunshine’ when I was a wee one, and it’s been love ever since.

Ahhh… Talk about inspiring. My kids and I have seen it probably 4 or 5 times and each time it takes my breath away. I don’t want to spoil it, but lets just say there are two inspiring women, some animal conservation, beautiful music and cinematography, and elephants. Our favorite IMAX of all time hands down.

It’s on my Life List to kiss one on the trunk, and has been for years. If anyone knows an elephant that needs a smootch, you call me, ok?

Have you heard about baby Moses? He’s 7 months old and was recently rescued in Kenya. Google it – he’s so stinking cute!

Less than 4 minutes ago I sent this link to my daughter. We love elephants! Watch until the end when the baby and mama are reunited. You’ll need some kleenex….
