Elephants are revered symbols in many cultures, as they are the largest living land mammals. In feng shui, they represent strength, protection, wisdom, and good luck! 

Native to Asia and Africa, the elephant has always been highly admired.  Elephants are revered in Buddhism and are one of the seven precious treasures of the universal monarch. Like a snow mountain, the elephant embodies dignity, majesty, and power.

In much of Buddhist and Hindu iconography, deities ride on elephants and are considered honored vehicles for transmitting spiritual teachings. In the Vedic systems, Ganesha is one of the most popular and loved deities. He has the head of an elephant and body of a boy. In ancient times, elephants were trained to battle because they were so powerful that they could remove any obstacles.

Feng shui recommendations: they can be positioned to face outward to guard at the main entrance of the home. The symbols can be placed on either the interior and exterior sides of the entry,
