I feel like the elephant must of been taught this though, which actually might make this really messed up because they could of beat the elephant a lot to try and teach them this.....

It's hard to tell in the video, but having been to the elephant camps in Chang Mai, Thailand, I saw the elephants trunks being guided by the mahouts. The elephants held the brush in their trunks and their riders moved the trunks to actually paint the pictures. If you look closely at the video the mahout is standing behind the elephant where they can't easily be seen by the cameras. This is not to say elephants are not clever, but it certainly casts doubts on their actual artistic abilities.

I hope they are shown are lot of love by their handlers - it's beautiful if they are being appreciated - if used only for tourist dollars, not so much.

I believe that elephants are the most intelligent land animals. They actually mourn their dead and can identify family members skeletal remains. Now they are apparently able to create art which has long been considered one of the activities that supposedly seperates man from animals.
