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 wisdom—a 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.

3"W x 4"H x 6"D.

        It brings color and fun into a room. Small enough to set almost anywhere. I have it in my kitchen window with some plants. Love it.

        Comments about South African Raku Elephant:

        The Afican Elephant is perfect. I had been putting off buying it becuase I didn't know weather I would enjoy having it. I'm glad I did purchase it, I just wish I could have gotten more of them. I know I will enjoy it in the years to come and people will ask me about it.

          Comments about South African Raku Elephant:

          I've added the South African Raku Elephant to my collection of elephants! It is extra special because I am from South Africa, so not only is it an addition to my collection but a little bit of "home" too. It is also actually larger than I expected, so that was a very pleasant surprise.
