The Grateful Elephant

The theme of the ‘grateful animal’ is almost universal in fables and folklore. The Jatakas contain numerous such stories, the grateful animal often being an elephant. And the motif is still by no means dead; it still has its appeal. Here is a rather delightful advertisement based on it.
The picture is of a painting from Tsaparang.
