Actual From Abstract

A colleague’s daughter drew this. 


At first glance, I wasn’t sure what I was looking at. 


Do you see what it is?


At first, I was thinking something a little alien perhaps. 


But there it is right in front of you.


It’s the head, ears, nose, and tusks of an elephant. 


I really like the abstractness of this art. 


All from simple circles, and voila you have an elephant. 


Look carefully at what you think you see, and let your mind put the whole picture together. 


That’s how you come to the actual from the abstract! 😉

Perception Is Reality

Sometimes, one person’s clothing hook is another person’s elephant trunk.


Or maybe it’s the other way around that some creative person looked at an elephant and thought:

“Oh my that trunk of his would make a great clothing hook.”


Life mimics art and art imitates life.


And that is flattery both ways. 


Either way perception is reality. 😉

Who Are The Real Animals

So if you want to know who are the real animals in this world…


It’s people!


If you can stomach it, watch this graphic video of elephant taming


The elephant is caged, chained, poked, prodded, beaten, spiked in all the sensitive areas. 


It is tortured and left with festering sores and then made to do sickening slave labor. 


While animals generally kill for food, people abuse, torture and kill for profit and maniacal enjoyment. 


Sometimes, we wonder why G-d punishes the world. 


But look at how the world behaves. 


Is there no heart or soul in some people? 


G-d forgive us for our sins and evil inclinations, and have mercy, and make your people better than this, much better. 😉
