The Elephant is a symbol of fertility, being used by couples or singles who desire a newborn.The elephant is a prominent symbol of strength, fertility and intelligence in many cultures, including Chinese, Indian and African. It is a respected animal of insight, cherished by many. In Buddhism, the elephant is one of the eight holy animals, and in the Hindu religion, the Ganesha is the God with the head of an elephant. Elephants have a reputation in both Indian and Chinese culture for attracting wealth and good luck.
In both a mythical and religious role, the Elephant is seen as a mark of magnificence, able to be worshipped and honoured. In many folklore and war stories, the elephant has been seen as enchanting and alluring - in ancient China, the Elephant was a war animal, often given as gifts to the emperor by the King of Siam, during the Kang Hsi era. This animal could always outdo the opponent and prove both its dignity and discretion.
The Elephant also holds a very potent position in Feng Shui. The mother of Buddha had dreams about a pure white elephant directly prior to Buddha’s birth; it is for this reason that the Elephant is now an icon of fertility, being used by couples or singles who desire a newborn. It is an auspicious omen, providing protection for the beholder.
One Evil eye bead is also placed above elephant symbol for protection from evil eyes.
