Great colors, terrific balance, lots of eye appeal for a rug or wall hanging. Painted by Boon Rod, an elephant artist whose name means having the merit to survive. It has been adapted to needlepoint canvas as one of a delightful series of paintings by elephants to showcase remarkable arists that are not human and to help support a very worthwhile organization. Boon Rod is one of various elephants who are cared for by The Asian Elephant Art and Conservation Project (AEACP), a charity dedicated to saving the diminishing number of Asian Elephants left on our planet. The Elephants in their care have been given paint and time to paint for their own benefit. The Art Project gives the elephants and their caretakers the artistic tool to change their lives for the better as their natural habitat disappears.
