Project details

Overview

My project is an Indian elephant, representing the Hindu culture. The elephant is a sacrifice animal and is known to be the living carnation of their most important god, Ganesh. The head of the elephant symbolises wisdom and knowledge, the ears grant the patience to listen carefully, the small eyes behold the future and recognise truth, while the long trunk is able to sniff out the good and evil, and the big belly symbolises it’s ability to digest both the good and bad in life. The wall-hanging is a textile art as it is highly decorative.
