Set of Two Celadon Elephants
(Based on 5 reviews)
Category: Home Décor/Home Accents
Although ceramics have flourished in Thailand since the 9th century, celadon stoneware has been an especially revered Thai art form since the 13th century. When the Chinese brought celadon techniques to the kingdom then called Siam, the ancient capital of Sukhothai became a center for world-renowned celadon artisans. This expressive elephant and her child speak to Thailand's cultural reverence for the powerful animals. They are believed to have great wisdom, and popular superstition says that it's good luck to walk underneath an elephant's belly.
