The Elephant, because of its awesome strength and great size, is widely held to be a symbol of of power - the brute force that supports the cosmos and its life forms, and also the majesty of royal power. In the wild, elephants are known to demonstrate notably human characteristics: longevity, social customs, and varied personality traits. This has given rise to many tales of elephants as companions to humans or stories where they exhibit human-like qualities such as fearfulness, rage, and stubbornness. In India, the elephant-headed god Gaha, is been widely revered as a remover of obstacles, hence, a bringer of success, among both Hindus and Buddhists.
According to the Mahabharata, the divine elephant Avatar was born out of the primeval milky ocean as it was being churned by the gods and demons. This elephant was destined to be the mount of Indra, the god of thunder and battle, protector of the cosmos. The intimate connection in Hindu mythology between Avatar and Indra indicates that the elephant is not simply a symbol for brute force, but is also associated with the powers that support and protect life. Probably because of its round shape and gray color, the elephant is regarded as a rain cloud that walks the earth, endowed with the magical ability to produce rain clouds at will. In present-day India, the elephant plays a significant part in an annual ceremony celebrated in New Delhi for the purposes of inducing rainfall, good harvest, and the fertility of human beings and their livestock.

- queen size bed
I love this Tapestry..it was well package and shipped in a timely manner ..When I opened.to my surprise it was more than I expected. I Order the full it is true to size.. I have it hung over my bed....Never dissatisfied with my orders.
This bedspread is wonderful. It is very good quality and the material is a heavier weight and weave than a lot of sheerer, lesser quality tapestries that are around. I ordered a queen and it was a great fit for my queen size bed. I am now using it draped on the back of the couch. Can go anywhere as a decorative item but is perfect as a bed cover. It came out of the package wrinkle-free which was an added bonus as sometimes with these types of products there can be a lot of wrinkling. I wash mine in the machine on gentle and cold, and line-dry. Always fresh and clean and still perfect after a wash. No shrinkage, no having to re-shape. Very happy with this product.
I bought this for my ex boyfriend to give him strength to find his path in life. He was very touched and really loved the tapestry. I would buy from you again. Thank you!
I love it so much!! I wish I had more wall space to buy another. I love all the items on your page.
This isn't the first tapestry I've ordered from Sivana. As usual I wasn't disappointed. I use them as bed spreads and they add beauty to my bedroom. They wash and dry perfectly. I have one that I purchased at least two years ago and it's been washed and dried many times and still looks perfect!!
