Good condition, please see description.

Beautiful wooden ceremonial elephant from India/Thailand. In Hinduism, the elephant plays an important role and is symbol of: strenght, immortality and conquering death. There is also a legend in which the mother of Buddha dreamt of a white elephant, 10 months before he was born.
The statue has a very large size and is enormously heavy. Condition good, with signs of age. The tusks of the elephant are missing. Please view the images to form your own impression.

Measurements: height 50 x width 53 x depth 31 cm
Weight: 30 kg!

The statue can be viewed and collected at the Asian African Art gallery in Vessem (the Netherlands). Considering its weight, picking it up is preferred. Shipping in consultation with the buyer. Shipping costs are for the buyer.

Asian African Art is a gallery specialized in authentic ethnographic art from varied tribes in Africa and Asia, based in the Netherlands.
Besides the ethnographic art, we have a specialism in golden collectible coins.

    Goed verpakt aangekomen. Jammer dat de kom ooit gebroken is geweest, maar voor het zicht goed gerepareerd: je ziet er bijna niets van; alleen: hij 'klinkt' niet meer zo goed. Toch 'n mooie kom! H.g.
