Enhanced with elephants on its outer walls, the holder brings this symbol of strength and wisdom into your space.
In Hinduism it is said that the earth is supported by mythical elephants, with one standing guard in each of the cardinal points – the North, East, South and West. The elephant also represents wisdom in the form of Lord Ganesh, the Remover of Obstacles and ever-loved Hindu deity easily recognized by his elephant head, human body, big belly and love for sweets. The dark brown burner is hand-carved in India from sheesham wood, also known as Indian rosewood. 12"x2.25"x2.5".
