Patinaed artwork made from papier-mâché, chic and sustainable – The Asian Elephant!
Asian elephant symbolism is very powerful. Elephants are revered as symbols of good luck, prosperity, destroyer of evil, remover of obstacles, as well as strength, power, wisdom, memory, and vitality.
As guardians of Buddha and Earth, the elephants’ physical strength indicates mental strength and responsibility. Because elephants are so wise, many Buddhists believe elephant symbols can evoke ‘luminosity’- a clear state of mind pursued through meditation.
An upward pointed elephant trunk dispenses energy, luck, prosperity and kindness. It is a movement elephants use to greet friends and express sheer delight. To bring compassion and to shower good fortune, place the upward trunk elephant in your home or office.
