Cuddliest artist in Vienna, panda’s paintings go on sale

Giant Panda Yang Yang uses finger paint and a brush to create a picture at Schoenbrunn Zoo in Vienna

Vienna Zoo is luring visitors with a new attraction: a painting panda.

Yang Yang, a female that gave birth to twins two years ago, has learned to use a brush to paint small pictures, and 100 of them are being sold online for 490 euros ($560) each, to raise funds to produce a picture book about the Austrian zoo’s pandas.

Yang Yang’s abstract works are reminiscent of the first attempts of a small child – black splotches on white paper.
