Dr. Eowyn, as an animal lover, this post is for you.
I don’t know about the rest of you, but this indicates to me that the intelligence in the Elephant is on the same level as a human. Therefore this animal is a victim of economic slavery, since the income it earns goes to its human, not to it, except perhaps for minimal food.
Suda paints way, way better than “modern art crap” artists!
I’m absolutely in agreement with you, Eo! My major client the past 20 years is a multi-millionaire lawyer here in Victoria, BC, with an enormous collection of many artworks, mostly oil paintings, quite a few African masks, Chinese pottery, many Oriental rugs (I’d love to have some in my house, but their cost is impossible for me), Inuit carvings, antique furniture, and many smaller pieces, displayed everywhere in a large house overflowing with stuff.
