The elephant in Indian ethos occupies a significant place. Due to its enormous strength, huge form, sharp memory and cleverness, Indians ascribe super qualities to this gigantic animal. Indian artists have used the motif of this pachyderm profusely. Not to be left behind, the craftsmen have popularized the image of the elephant. This is a small wall piece, with a sturdy hook behind. The elephant head protrudes in all its elegance. Its forehead is decorated with majestic finery ending with a frill of beads. The trunk is also decorated. The tusks suddenly appear from behind the trunk and protrude further sharply. The trunk falls straight and curls inwards. In the curve at the edge, a traditional bell hangs, giving it a decorative and auspicious feel.
The ornamentation of the forehead is skilfully crafted. Comparatively, the eyes are inconspicuously etched. Since it is a solid cast, there is ample volume which lends richness to it.
An auspicious piece to decorate one's door way or a niche.
