The Young Raj
My youngest son has a common preschoolers' obsession with animals, and an uncommon bond with elephants in particular. He was drawn to them from as early as we can recall, and has never wavered in his preference for them above all creatures. We sometimes call him Ganesh, the elephant boy.
These two torans, traditional Indian doorway tapestries, hang above the windows of his room. I love how they look with the chandelier. Sort of aristocratic hippie. Apt for a child named for a Joni Mitchell song.
Speaking of beach tar, his Daddy snapped this the other day (clearly with the eye of his heart). It was at a lake in the country, but I think you can tell his real home is a beach in Goa.
I found the camel toran on ebay, and the elephant one in a street market in Greenwich Village in April.
