Patina Illusion Artwork made from Papier-mâché – Sustainable and Authentic: The Radiant Asian Elephant!
Asian elephant symbolism is very powerful. Elephants are revered as a symbol 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 supposedly 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 elephant with the trunk pointed downwards stores luck and energy. It is a symbol of wisdom and knowledge allowing you to easily overcome various tasks and obstacles. To stay grounded at work or to reserve strength and vitality at home, the downward trunk elephant might be for you!
