Artisans in South Africa use raku pottery techniques to create this colorful elephant. The bright color-block pattern is inspired by the beadwork and painted homes that are artistic hallmarks of the northeastern Ndzundza Ndebele people. Elephants symbolize steadfastness and wisdoma pair of curved tusks even frames South Africa's coat of arms. Popular lore says that elephants never forget, and they often recognize humans and other elephants even after decades, making this handcrafted sculpture a touching gift for a loved one who is far away. Colors may vary in each handcrafted sculpture.
