Elephants have been the subject of various cultural depictions in mythology, symbolism and popular culture. They are both revered in religion and respected for their prowess in war. They also have negative connotations such as being a symbol for an unnecessary burden. Ever since the stone age, when elephants were represented by ancient petroglyphs and cave art, they have been depicted in various forms of art, including pictures, sculptures, music, film, and even architecture. Elephant’s characteristics includes strength, royalty, connection to ancient wisdom, removal of obstacles and barriers, confidence, patience, using education opportunities, commitment, gentleness, communicating in relationships, discernment, intelligence, compassion. In Asia, the elephant is viewed a bit differently. The Chinese believe that they symbolize longevity of life, happiness, ease, and good luck
Elephants are the gentle giants of the Earth. Their size emanates majestic royalty, poise, honor and their personalities follow suit. Elephant reminds us that we must look after ourselves first before we reach out and help others. Know that we have the instincts that will lead us where we need to go and what parts of us need nourishment. Perhaps we have isolated ourselves from family and need to find our way home.
