One of the largest and strongest land animals living on the planet today, Elephants radiate an energy of kindness and wisdom.
In Feng Shui, the Elephant symbolizes protection, good fortune, wisdom, and strength. The Chinese pronunciation of Elephant is Xiàng which has a similar sound to the Chinese word for good fortune, or something that is auspicious. The Elephant therefore is suitable for all areas of life, representing your aspirations being granted at work, in your personal life, and in that of your household.
An Elephant’s trunk has a complex language of its own. Being both sensitive and strong, Elephants use their trunks for a variety of purposes. These range from drinking water, to moving heavy objects and greeting friends. In traditional Feng Shui, Elephants are placed by a door with trunks held upward over their heads, symbolising that accumulated wealth and prosperity is being showered into the home. The Elephant is a sacred animal in Buddhism, and was often depicted in Indian mythology.
