Pair of Parading Polychrome Carved Wood Striding Elephant Sculptures

About

An exotic pair of striding wooden elephants sculptures carved and painted with exquisite detail. Wearing trinkets on the legs and tusks along with a large ceremonial necklace, each figure is caparisoned with an ornate yellow howdah blanket beautifully contrasting with the distressed grey blue paint covering the regal body. Crowned with a sumptuous headdress, the pachyderm’s eyes and eyebrows are nicely enhanced, giving it a profound and solemn look. Revered in both the East and West, the elephant has been a symbol of strength and nobility throughout history. This powerful and exotic pair of finely carved polychrome wooden elephant sculptures from the 20th century could colorfully parade on any support and make a huge impression in any home.
