OMG! I found this sweet garage door, and the sun was making art on the art.
Still, I want to show the art clearly, inasmuch as magically. I was out walking, anyway. When I returned 2 hours later there was a thick cloud cover.
Pics taken by Resa – November 19, 2021
This is also signed, but I think it’s the name the artist gave to the piece. Pardons if I am wrong!

This is gorgeous dahling ( and I got out of my sick bed to say so!) so intricate and detailed, Amazing colors and since I adore Elephants 🐘 it’s a real plus! xoxoxo
Sick bed???? OMG! Merely a cold or so…I hope.
I want you to be better and healthy!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Boogapony wants new outfits! I need my model!

I’m okay. I just need to rest a couple of days. Not to worry Boogapony is ready to ride. xoxoxo …sniff.
Oh! Get well pronto! xoxo
…you get well soon, dahling!!! 💕
Thank you Dahling ! 🤗💞🌷
A pachydermal delight!
Yes! Bumba, you have the word – up!
Striking art, Resa! I enjoyed the way you captured it with wide views, close-ups, and from various angles.
Thank you, Dave!
My aim is to show not just the big picture, but the details.
Not all art has details like this piece does. Nonetheless, when there is close-up beauty to show I’ll show it.
I have one coming up that is stunning, in the whole. Yet, details ..no.
How will I present it?
Gorgeous, Resa. You did a great job taking the photos too.
Thank you, John! I want everyone to see the big picture and the intricacies.
I adore the street art I find, and I want everyone to experience the way I do….as much as possible.
You do a great job. 😊
Wow! How amazing is this?! ❤️🐘❤️
It is totally amazing!
What a cool elephant. It has strange illusions with the foreshortened trunk. Almost like a cobra when you first look at it.
Interesting, my dear Tim! Let me look an see what you do!
You are not the only one who sees many things in this Elephancy.
We’ve had – Cobra nose, Bat wing elephant ears, Peacock feathers, Gemstones and more.
Ah… the artist saw this post, and left a comment. He left his link to Instagram. He’s quite talented.
Cool. It’s an amazing mural with lots of stuff to find and see. That’s the way art should be.
I’m not a huge fan of the white canvas with one dot on it.
Hello Resa, an awesome mural of an equally awesome animal. I would be happy to see this picture alongside the famous artwork of British painter and conservationist David Shepherd. Shepherd painted fabulous images of elephants that were so lifelike U always expected them to move – the attention he paid to the unique texture of the elephant’s skin was mesmerizing.
I’ll finish with one question though, what’s the difference between an African elephant and an Indian elephant? …..About 6000km!😊
LOL!!! You nut!
You are right, about 6000 km!
You are also right that this is a spectacular elephant! 🐘⭐️
Hi again, to be serious (just for a moment) the easy way to distinguish between an African Elephant and an Indian type is the shape and size of their ears. African Elephants have the larger ears and amazingly the shape of their ears actually looks a little like the outline of the African continent.
I’m not so sure about the trunk on that elephant – it looks a little like a cobra! The the colors, etc., are great!
JT! I think you are right.
As many have pointed out, there is more than one animal in this Elephancy.
What a sweet piece of art! So happy you saw it! xx
I love this! Maybe not on my own garage door, but so cool to look at 🙂
I love looking at all the garage doors with art!
Gorgeous street art. Just beautiful. The detail is amazing. Color and rendering just wonderful.
There’s so much to see in this piece. The artist put a lot of attention to details into it. ❦
What an amazing thing to have on your garage door!
What a beautiful piece. How can one not love elephants? Especially when they are depicted so beautifully. Wowzers.
Agree! This elephant is special. It’s art+! ⚡️💥
It is beautiful art!
Resa, are you familiar with this poem?
Laura Elizabeth Richards
Once there was an elephant,
Who tried to use the telephant—
No! No! I mean an elephone
Who tried to use the telephone—
(Dear me! I am not certain quite
That even now I’ve got it right.)
Howe’er it was, he got his trunk
Entangled in the telephunk;
The more he tried to get it free,
The louder buzzed the telephee—
(I fear I’d better drop the song
Of elephop and telephong!)
YES! I love this poem from childhood. Although all these years I thought it was Kipling. Thanks for straightening me out, Janet!!! 👍😳
Excellent photos Resa. This is a fascinating and beautiful piece. I’m seeing elements of a few creatures here – elephant, cobra / baboon nose, peacock feathers, squid / octopus eyes, lower part bat wings on the elephant ears. The patterns on the head are similar to the gemstone Zircon… so maybe a ref from the ‘zirco’ part?
Just fab! Thanks for the share :)x
I fell in love with this at first sight. I was in glee when it got cloudy, so I could capture it properly.
Still, the one in the sunlight is a cool opener.
Yes, I see all of the things you do in this. Not a simple work of art, but simply delightful! xoxo
Discovering a gem, a fine thing indeed, young Resa. Regards, TOF
Thank you, TOF! It is a gem. 💎 x
Excellent. I am seeing things other than the elephant…
Yes, many people have said that! Lol, it’s not a mandala, but in some ways it could be a mandala’s cousin. So happy you got to see this!
Fascinating, very well captured. 🙂
Yes, it is fascinating.
Thank you for the compliment on my captures, dear LDN. xo
Oh, wow, Dahling… this is gorgeous. He really draws you in and all the details are so beautiful! I also love the peacock feathers and the playful sun rays!
I LOVE IT!!!!
…and the photographer!
Agree! It’s a wonderful piece, with all its intricacies! It was love at first sight.
This photographer loves you too!
Wow! What a striking piece of art to run across while out walking! Thank you for sharing it, Resa.
My pleasure, Merril!
WOW! Garage doors aren’t boring anymore!! Thank you for including the close-up views for the details.
OMG! That’s overwhelming! So beautiful!
Stay safe, dear Resa!
James Zirco Fisher
Thank you for the link!
This work of art is brilliant!!!!!!!
Years ago, I fell in love with elephants after reading two non-fiction books, so I LOVE these garage doors. The artwork is gorgeous with such intricacy, and what a great way to beautify garages. 🙂 A wonderful find, Resa, thank you! 💕🐘💗
I’m in love with elephants, too! They are gentle giants. It’s beyond a shame how they are hunted for their tusks.
It is a great way to beautify a garage, and send a be kind to animals message!
Wow Resa, this is great, definitely seeing more than an elephant but it is all cool. 🙂
It’s a beauty, Daniel! There are many animals represented in this painting. It makes me think how amazing animals are, and we should always be kind to them. xo
That’s really beautiful. I love how intricate it is. And the sunlight on the garage was a nice effect too!
I adore the intricacy, too!
Agree, the sunlight was a nice effect!
Thank you for dropping by for a peek!

🐘 SO TRUE, SISTERS. SOMETIMES WALLS BECAME AMAZING AND GENUINE ANIMALS
Thank you dear!!!
As far as tusks and nose rings go, holy smokes!
Agree! This is a fab work of art, tusks, rings and a cobra nose, with bat wing ears…. and anything else the artist thought of!
I’m now working on a very sweet post…sexy as all get out!
Sorry, this is such a cool elephant, I have to put the Trunk Roads thingy here…
Did you stand guard over my body in another life?
Did you raise your voice to the evening sky and bounce your songs of mourning into the distance?
Did you run your trunk over my dead bones?
Did you pour your secret weeping whispers over my spirit?
As I lay there,
not wanting to leave your devotion behind,
was it your song that carried me back to all those ancient paths?
Was it your song that brought to life the patterns I had made across your sacred highways?
And was that approval I felt across my cheek,
or just soft rain?
Is it your song that haunts me now?
Is it your song that keeps me from stumbling, in this broken world where all roads keep us apart?
It feels at times as though my life barely belongs here, in this body, in these streets, behind these windows…
yet one distant song continues to keep me strong.
Did you bless my bones once, so I would know, even here, that I still have friends in the herd?
And will it still be worth it, when our worlds come back together?
then keep the roads open for me,
trumpet my regards to all the other lost souls who wander here,
and walk a little by my side –
for there are worse ways to live,
and far worse ways for a song to die.
This is a beautiful piece, Woodsy.
Thank you for it!
Who wrote it? Is it one of yours?
it was quite a popular one when I was doing a lot of open mike nights.
Better picture taking is one of the silver linings of clouds.
This is a welcoming elephant richly decorated .
You find treasures in Toronto , Resa!
The detail on this one is fantastic! And love how the sun is adding another layer to the artwork. Great find, Resa xo
Resa, this really is magical. I love elephant artwork. This one is a real find! Splendid. Hugs on the wing!
You captured the detailing perfectly. The intricacy on the eyes alone is outstanding.
