The elephant signifies strength, royalty, dignity, patience, wisdom, longevity, and happiness. Highly revered for its intelligence, the elephant also has a strong sense of loyalty and community. A powerful symbol of good fortune, keeping a lucky elephant in your home is thought to protect you from bad luck and stimulate prosperity in your life.

About the artist:
The Improved Arts Metal Sculpture Project was started in 1986 by five brothers. Having discovered their artistic talents, they founded the group to depict African natural history through metalwork and to make a better living. Old tin cans and other scraps of metal from businesses in the industrial area of Harare are turned into these delightful sculptures by these artists using snips, pliers, and hammers.
