Those who appreciate the beauty of the gentle strength of the elephant as well as silver-plated art will enjoy this sweet silver-plated box, perfect for storing keepsakes, jewelry or other valuables.
Created through the traditional process of silver plating, this gorgeous box features a delightful elephant and numerous open lotus flowers. During traditional silver plating, the surface of the item is covered with a sheet of silver. Pressure and heat are then applied to fuse the silver to the surface of the item permanently.
Carved into the silver plating on the box are hundreds of lotus flowers, which hold a great deal of significance in Buddhism and indicate purity of the mind and body. The flower petals are open, which indicate the mind opening and growing in enlightenment and truth as the Buddha’s virtue continues to grow within.
The presence of the elephant is equally auspicious, as the elephant is one of the Seven Jewels of Royal Power in Buddhism, indicating strength of mind. Elephants are regarded to be wise, happy and steadfast and are cherished in Buddhist society. In fact, according to folklore a white elephant announced the birth of Buddha.
The charming elephant on this silver-plated box has his trunk pointing down, indicating that he is dispensing good luck to those around him. Bring this wonderful item into your home and let it inspire you to be strong and pure with perhaps just a little bit of good luck as well.
