Elephantine Talent

This extraordinary pencil drawing by elementary school teacher Adonna Khare was the the $200,000 prize winner at this year's ArtPrize 2012 open art competition in Grand Rapids, Michigan. It's amazing isn't it? It's kind of Heironymous Bosch meets Patrick Woodroffe meets M C Escher. I love it. Here are some close-ups:

My thanks to Chrissi Broughton for bringing it to my attention (and she got to see it for real).
