The winning piece of the ArtPrize 2012 was breathtakingly massive and titled the 'Elephants' Mural by Adonna Khare.

Artist Khare is an elementary school teacher with a talent for drawing. The mural depicts a safari scene of animals with majestic elephants taking center stage. 'Elephants' was made entirely by hand with pencil and boasts whopping measurements of 8-feet tall by 35-feet wide. This artistic marvel is featured a the Grand Rapids Art Museum.


"It's kind of a biography of my life transplanted into animals, sad things like loss and sickness, and happy things like the birth of my daughter," says Khare of her award-winning piece. With such sentimental value and sheer talent the Elephants' Mural by Adonna Khare is truly deserving of all its merits.
