You are right:There's no way the elephant drew that; sorry.
With each mark, the mahout tugs at his elephant's ear. He nudges it up and down to get the animal to make a vertical line, or pulls it sideways to get a horizontal one. To encourage spots and blobs he tugs the ear forward, towards the canvas. So, very sadly, the design the elephant is making is not hers but his.
There is no elephantine invention, no creativity, just slavish copying.
Investigating further, after the show is over, it emerges that each of the socalled artistic animals always produces exactly the same image, time after time, day after day, and week after week. Mook always paints a bunch of flowers, Christmas always does a tree, and Pimtong a climbing plant. Each elephant works to a set routine, guided by her master.
You'll be happy to know that "Egyptian" was not a Carpenters song. It was offered to Toni Basil, who rejected it. Bangles still didn't write it, but still.There's no way the elephant drew that; sorry.
I was disappointed to learn today "Hazy Shade of Winter" isn't a Bangles original. The song was originally sung by Paul Simon. I hope I don't learn next that "Walk Like An Egyptian" was originally by The Carpenters.
