Elephants are people.

Boing Boing has just made my day.

First of all, go listen to this incredible recording of music made by elephants. I mean elephants actually playing instruments. It’s ethereal, soaked all through with beauty and magic.

You can pick up the mp3 here, for 99 cents.

Next, elephant art. It’s a project in which elephants’ paintings are sold to raise money for the cause of these threatened mammoths. The paintings are as lovely and strange as the music. I would surely buy one if I has a spare $400 laying around.
