To protect Asian elephant habitats, the National Geographic Society is raising money by selling elephant paintings. No, these aren't paintings OF elephants; they're paintings BY elephants. These pachyderms are regular Pollocks, making art using gravity and bodily movements, without the fancy theory and high price tags. You can get your own original Ramona for only $325. The one drawback to these paintings is their corny new age titles (tacked on by two-legged art dealers, no doubt). Only via the web could such art truly find its target market -- from the heart of Asia to a bourgeois living room near you. - Curt Cloninger
