To the Hindu way of thought, the elephant is found in the form of Ganesha who is the god of luck, fortune, protection and is a blessing upon all new projects. Ganesha in all his magnificently vibrant elephant glory, is intent on bulldozing obstacles on your behalf.
The elephant symbolises:
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. Specifically, the elephant is considered a symbol of responsibility because it takes great care and responsibility of its offspring as well as their elders.
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 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. The box is especially ideal for jewelry as there is plenty of space to store a number of pieces. It definitely makes a beautiful addition to one’s home decoration, especially if you appreciate handmade woodwork.
The measurements are as follows:
10.5cm long (4.1 inches)
