This the first large Spirit Animal painting that I made when I moved to Austin, TX. It was the beginning of a Life-Long series. The Elephant symbolizes power & grace. They exhibit tremendous strength, but can also be gentle & silent. A remarkable thing about them is how they live in community. They celebrate birth and mourn death, and they live in multi-generational groups, caring for each other. So the Elephant also symbolizes intelligence, community and connection with our ancestors. The latter is exhibited in a literal way when they dig with their tusks, exposing what is below the surface. The elephant is a revered symbol in many world cultures, perhaps the most famous is the Hindu God Ganesh, the remover of obstacles. It is also said that the Buddha once incarnated in the form of a white elephant.
