Elephant Strength

The elephant is traditionally symbolic of a variety of different elements in numerous countries and cultures. From representing power and dignity  in Africa, divinity and benevolence in Asia, to good luck and good fortune in India. This animal however is known first and foremost to represent strength, in both physical and spiritual forms.  So fitting then in symbolism (and comfort) to choose the Painted Elephant organic cotton tank for my friend Jamie for one of my first few Soul-Flower Karma Krewe experiences!

Elephants represent strength in both the physical and spiritual form
Strong but gentle like the animal it so artfully displays, it fit her perfectly in size and style. The artwork itself is really one of the best I've seen in clothing design. A perfect combination of functionality and creativity. The symmetry in the hand-drawn elephant itself solidifies the idea of strength and stability.  The lotus flower and vines add a slight touch of femininity along with the curve of the neckline and longer hem.

Beautifully symbolic hand-drawn elephant design
Jamie is a relatively new friend, a rare find in a random stranger. I'm still learning of the challenges she has faced, and just understanding the the obstacles yet to come. All weaved throughout a positive, strong, independent being. She has recently found the idea of the symbolic elephant as a proper kindred spirit, a representation of strength and beauty. And as with this Painted Elephant Tank, she wears it well :)

Strength in body. Strength in spirit.
Peace & Love,
