People collect all sort of things, but nick nacks depicting elephants must be one of the most popular hobby. Some people insist that only elephants with raised trunks bring good luck and are very insistent as how these elephants are placed in a room. Others insist on the exact opposite and some just like elephants and don't care how they are displayed.
Elephants have been promoted to godly status in Indian culture, are the symbol for the Republican party, are adored by kids and grown ups alike. They symbolize luck and longevity and there is no limit with our fascination with these gentle looking giants.There is even a place called Mister Ed's Elephant museum that displays 12,000 elephants in all sort of sizes and shapes!
I have clients and friends who collect elephants and sometimes hear them complain that they have so many, yet can't stop collecting either. This collecting craze usually starts when someone mentions that they really, really like elephants. They get one and then another as gifts, perhaps can't resist to purchase that super cute elephant they spot at a store and before you know it have amassed a sizeable collection. I am guilty of adding to a friend's collection as well and fueling that craze. I think it's because I am an in the closet elephant collector too. I love buying stuff that depicts elephants, but can still part with these super cool finds by gifting them to others. That brings me to today's great find - an Elephant Mandala Wall Hanging!
This 55x85 in cloth is made of 100% cotton which is machine washable and dryable. The Indian made tapestry can be used as a bed cover, tapestry, curtain, wall hanging or table cloth. It even ships with a white pillow cover in case you want to use it to drape over your single bed. If used as a bedcover it is wider than long and will fit over the top but the ends won't overhang much. The cloth is as thick as a sheet and well suited as wall hanging or table cloth. The black and white print of elephants with raised trunks and floral patterns has a nice contrast and adds an ethnic feel to your decor. I have not washed it, so I do not know if the colors bleed or not.
