Asian elephant symbolism is very powerful. Elephants are revered as a symbol of good luck, prosperity, destroyer of evil, remover of obstacles, as well as strength, power, wisdom, memory, and vitality.
In India, there are millions of temples dedicated to the Elephant God, who has the head of an elephant and the body of a young boy. This God is the child of Shiva – the sustainer of the Universe. Elephant god figurines are placed in vehicles and gifted as house warming gifts to bring luck and positivity in the recipients’ lives.
