Since ancient times, in the most varied cultures of the world, the elephant has been an animal rich in deep symbolic meanings. In fact, the elephant, despite the immense size that distinguishes it, if not provoked has a mild and meek temperament, which makes it the emblem of a strength, of a power, which manifests itself only when necessary. In fact, it represents wisdom – an ancient tradition of oriental countries – nobility, longevity, good luck, and again fidelity, determination, family.
From this last point of view, in particular, the extreme sense of protection on the part of the elephant, not only towards its cubs, but also towards the members of the herd: a profound spirit of sacrifice, of abnegation, he resides in this pachyderm, also willing to sacrifice his own life to protect the affections most dear to him.
