Hand Carved Stone Elephant Yard Statue
There was a time when elephants or other related mastodons were found the world over, including the Americas. Now you have to travel to Africa or Asia to experience the world's largest land mammal in the wild.
Regal, intelligent, gentle yet powerful elephants represent focus, determination, loyalty, responsibility, and strength.
Elephants are best represented in groups, as their social structure is matriarchal and they form lifelong social bonds; showing tremendous care for their offspring and elderly. If family is important to you, the elephant may be your totem.
Perhaps there's a part of our human nature that misses this interaction with these gentle giants and we long for that reconnection.
