An elephant's eye is richly decorated with paint in a parade at the ElefantAsia festival in the Hongsa district of the northern Lao province of Xayabouri on 18 February 2007. Only about 2,000 of the animals survive in Laos, formerly known as Xan Lang, the "Land of One Million Elephants," say the festival organisers. AFP PHOTO/Frank Zeller / AFP PHOTO / Frank Zeller
