Dimensions: Box is 31cm (12 inches) long, 5.5cm (2 inches) wide and 5.5cm (2 inches) high.
We say: A hand carved wooden box with a flat lid and delicate brass flower and elephant design inlays in on the top and sides. This box has two separate hinged compartments. Inside the top are two metal dishes suitable for burning incense cones and two drilled holes, one at each end for burning incense sticks.
Underneath is a second hinged storage area suitable for storing a box of incense. Made from high quality wood and these boxes are beautifully finished with a smooth polished feel and fine grain patterns.
Please note that this has been made in India, mainly with Indian incense in mind. Therefore we have found that Japanese incense doesn't fit in, unless you make the whole bigger.
Dictionary Terms Explained
- Wisdom, loyalty, intelligence
The elephant is one of the most popular and best known animal symbols. Elephants are highly regarded as being a symbol of loyalty - as they tend to stick together - and of strength and power, as they're one of the largest and most powerful creatures. They're known for their intelligence and wisdom too (they live long lives) and, the classic phrase, "Elephants never forget," reflects an elephant's intellect and memory abilities. Due to this, anything associated with an elephant makes a great gift for a special friend, signifying that you'll never forget them or their kindness.
Many people also regard the elephant symbol as lucky and something that could bring them good luck, especially ornaments or statues that feature raised trunks. Elephants feature in Buddhism, as Buddha chose a white elephant as one of his incarnations, and they're considered as being holy, patient and wise.
Elephants are very important in Thailand, both in the culture and way of life, and are regarded as a symbol of power and peace. In the late 17th century, a Thai king had 20,000 elephants trained ready to do battle in war. A white elephant still features today on the flag of the Royal Thai navy.
Overall, anything involving elephants, such as a mini statues, ornament or jewellery, is good to have around and promotes positive feelings of loyalty, wisdom and strength, reminding us that we have much to learn from elephants.
