E is for Elephant

E is for Elephant

This heavy mosaic collage hangs in my living room –  the elephant symbolizes …

Strength * Wisdom * Solitude * Intelligence * Courage * Loyalty

and is said to protect a home from bad luck –

and bring good luck to all who live there.

They are also said to be a like a “call to arms”  for those going through a battle.These powerful beasts are inherently peaceful and family-oriented. Standing strong for their cause.

Now, I am not terribly superstitious, but I am inexplicably drawn to symbolism – and if there isn’t any there, I will make it up myself to suit my needs :)

  1. That’s an elephant? Okay. I’m all for the good luck and prosperity I’ve heard elephant figurines can bring your home, but the trunk has to be raised. Since I can’t tell that is an elephant, I can’t tell where his truck is! :)

    Whatever keeps you happy and secure…it’s all good. ♥

  3. That mosaic is beautiful–thanks for sharing! I also love your take on symbolism vs. superstition. I agree–whenever symbolism can be used to our advantage, by all means *do* it :D
