In Buddhist art, almost every element of the art has significance, from the color to the position of the animal or statue. For example, elephants are symbolic in Buddhist tradition for their steadfast, strong characteristics and represent responsibility and both physical and mental strength. The symbolism of the elephant's strength goes beyond sheer physical capabilities; however, the elephant also represents the ability to progress from an uncontrollable mind to a mind that can be directed at will.

According to some Buddhist mythology, the Buddha Shakyamuni was an elephant in some of his several lives and was pure in both appearance and thought. In addition, elephant tusks are one of the Seven Royal Emblems of Buddhism, often seen in sculptures as a temple guardian and a protector of Buddha himself.

This beautiful soapstone elephant sculpture can serve as a representation of your own journey of the mind and your aspiration towards noble, pure and calm thought. Remember that Buddhist theory holds that elephants are a symbol of the endless power of the Buddha and the pure intention, effort and aspirations of mental strength and power.

The position of the elephant with the curved trunk may also bring the owner luck, so position this fantastic sculpture in an open space in your home to bring luck to yourself and
