In modern day India, festivals honoring the Elephant-God are celebrated yearly. The elephant is a symbol for power, dignity, intelligence and peace. Having an elephant at home it is generally considered good luck and the animal is a symbol of good fortune. Elephants in India are symbolizing a kind of divinity and benevolence and that is why in recent times there are still many religious ceremonies where offerings are made to the elephants. They wash them and anoint them with special oils and pigments so that the community can be blessed with good will. They also symbolize wisdom, loyalty, strength, fidelity and longevity. Some communities still consider the elephant to be a strong symbol of luck. And thus the saying goes "keep a lucky elephant at the door to your house so that you can get protection from bad luck". All shots were taken in South India.

I had a Hindu friend once and got very interested in learning about the different aspects of Ganesha, the 'Elephant God', so your images brought back some happy memories, Isabel. And beautifully coloured images they are too. Thank you.
