Elephant Apparently Paints Self-Portrait

From Boing Boing:

There’s some uncertainty as to whether it’s real. Looks real enough to me, but the elephant must have been trained to do that, right? Elephant art is beautiful, but it’s usually abstract; as far as I know, while elephants seem to have senses of color and composition that are compatible with ours, any sense of perspective or realism they have is indecipherable to human eyes.

Their sense of rhythm, on the other hand, is something we can understand.
