Three Elephants

Our set of three china elephants pose admirably with sweet expression and dignified stature, even though they are small enough to fit in the palm of your hand. The father, mother and baby are rare white elephants with royal blue trappings, each with its trunk up in triumph.

The Legend of the White Elephant
Since very ancient times Hindus have revered the white elephant that carried Indra, the king of heaven. The Saddan, or celestial elephant, was the mythological avatar that reincarnated in different ages to bring peace to the planet. Accordingly the scriptures say, "Gautama Buddha entered the womb of Queen Maya, as a white elephant, to be born upon the earth for the last time to teach the law and give the millions peace."
