Why we love the Elephant Wall Decor Gray (m7050 gr) . . .

According to feng shui, an elephant with its trunk raised will shower good luck to those around it. It is a symbol for intelligence, curiosity, kindness and strength. The basic shape of this handcrafted metal elephant has its powerful trunk raised due to the importance of the symbolism. Furthermore, the artisan hand-paints the body in a colorful pattern influenced by designs from different Eastern cultures. Placing such a symbol near a door is said to welcome beneficial energy into that space.

The basic frame of the is created using tin, which is powder coated with a black finish. The frame is reinforced using tin wire along the inner edge. Capiz is an oyster shell and the primary purpose of the oyster is as a source of food. However, the by-product, the shell, can be used for decoration. Due to it being a natural material, the natural colors of the capiz come through as tans and browns underneath the paint. The shell is then painted the bold colors you see. The entire front facing piece is carefully hand-painted.
