Elephants in art I

This is a great idea, but I don’t like the realisation much. The/A (?) British artist Banksy exhibits in LA a show called “Barely Legal”. It is a perfecly ordinary room, with a live elephant painted decoratively. BBC:

The animal, called Tai, was covered in pink and gold paint and placed in a mocked-up house to represent how world poverty is widely ignored.

BBC’s point is somewhat watered down by the fact that the item appears in a section called “entertainment”. Yes, there is an elephant in the house.
