Papier Maché Elephant
An elephant such as this one, with its trunk up, is an excellent symbol to display in your home because it signifies the showering of good luck. Elephants are seen as strong, beautiful, protective, and, although very large and powerful, they are seen as kind and wise as well. All this is very good energy for your home. The ornate decoration of this piece puts one in mind of the Kashmiri royalty who decked their elephants in finery as a display of their wealth. A beautiful piece with bright, classic colors against the high gloss black will make this a stand-out piece in your décor. Kashmir artisans take the art of papier maché to an unparalleled height, employing several persons on one piece, each adding a different layer to the process.
