The park's star attraction is Phet (diamond) who immediately took to the hobby. He is just five years of age and has been at the park nine months. He loves to dance to Northern Thai music when painting and favours the colour green and blue. Lek reasons that his colour choice reflects his love for nature. He favours bold cross-canvas strokes using various thickness of brush and his personal style is regarded as amongst the most professional of all elephant painters. His style is definitely of the non-objective non-figurative abstract model founded in the 1920's.
