The elephant symbolises strength, stability and wisdom. The origin of the elephant as a good luck symbol is traced back to India. Hindus worship a god named Ganesha, the elephant headed god is one of the most popular Gods in Hinduism. Elephant figurines are now becoming increasingly popular as a general good luck symbol.
Elephants bring good luck into the home. By placing a pair of elephants at the front door facing inward brings good luck and prosperity for those entering the home. You can also place them facing the entrance to ensure only good fortune passes through.
Typically, the elephant trunk should be up, although it is a matter of choice. If the trunk is up it is believed to bring good fortune to those who walk past it.
Buying an elephant figurine or bracelet and giving it as a gift to someone brings good luck to the person you give it to.
