If you know anything about elephant folklore, then you’ll know that this giant of the animal kingdom is associated with knowledge, wisdom, power, strength, patience and determination. In many Asian cultures, the majestic elephant is considered a sacred animal. African, Indian and Chinese cultures regard the elephant as a symbol of protection, honour, loyalty and tenacity. In the Chinese language, the Chinese character for “good luck” has the same pronunciation as that for “elephant”. Elephants also have great significance in Feng Shui to energise, balance, protect and bring success and good luck to the home or office. Feng Shui practitioners believe each area of a building governs certain aspects of life, ranging from relationships, health, wellbeing, prosperity, success, fertility and spiritual growth.
