Some Asian cultures also believe the elephant is a cosmic creature, and carries the world upon it's back. We gather more symbolic meaning of elephant by observing it in nature.

The elephant also has immense determination and loyalty – always standing up for others and always defending members of the group in its natural habitat.
This beautiful handmade box is hand carved and has intricate Indian and Balinese style floral patterns. It's made from Mango Tree Wood which is eco-friendly for the following reasons:
– Responsible management of mango plantations adds to the sustainability of mango wood. Cut-down trees are immediately replaced, and only old, fruitless trees are harvested for wood.
– The use of mango wood prevents teak and other endangered woods from being harvested from the wild.
– Manufacturing of wood products provides additional revenue for mango farmers, supporting the local community.
– Overall deforestation is reduced by using domestic mango wood.
– Mango wood is relatively hard and dense and therefore very durable, requiring little to no maintenance.
– Using the mango wood from cut-down trees reduces carbon emissions, because the wood is not left to rot (rotting wood produces carbon dioxide).
It is very special and would make a lovely gift for a loved one, as it's perfect for storing personal, special items.
