In Buddhism, the wild elephant represents our uncontrolled, passionate minds. ... To free ourselves from suffering, we train and subdue our minds. The elephant, tamed rather than rampaging, symbolizes a mind disciplined through meditation, stable, majestic in its power. Each one of these pieces is uniquely created by Creating Dharma, one of the best concrete artists in Canada. Their statues are created with a keen eye for artistic presentation and detail using reclaimed rock from the Canadian Rocky Mountains. Please note: Due to the weight and detail of each piece, these items are not available for shipping outside the Winnipeg area.
