elephant parade

These adorable little elephants have made quite a trip so far; from the home of a collector or a consignor to last night's estate auction; they are now marching their way to the shop this afternoon.

three favorites...


...and here's an interesting Feng Shui principle about elephant decor  that I've read from Simplified Bee:

"For good luck, protection and strength to the household, place a statue of an elephant, or a pair of elephants, at the front door," advises Asian Feng Shui in an article on Feng Shui Elephant Tips. "When elephants are used in such a way, they are referred to as “Elephants of Many Blessings.” These elephants should have their trunks facing upwards as that represents prosperity, good luck and victory, although elephants with their trunks facing downward represent longevity and conception. The direction of the trunk can affect the chi within the space, so it is important to choose an elephant that will bring about the energy you wish to have in your household or office."

  4. Hello! I'm not well versed in Feng Shui principles, but I do keep two teak elephants on our entryway table and a wood wall hanging of Ganesh - the elephant headed Hindu god. I adore all of these elephants! Checking your shop now to see if they are for sale yet.
