Elephant that washes windows - Dante Gabriel Rossetti

British painter Dante Gabriel Rossetti (1828-1882) had many different animals in the courtyard of his house. One day, he decided to buy an elephant.  

His friends asked him why he wanted such a large animal, why an elephant. This is what Dante Gabriel Rossetti told them:

Why? So I can teach it to wash the windows of my house. Then everyone would stare and say, 'That elephant is washing the windows of the house in which lives Dante Gabriel Rossetti, the famous artist.”
