Oh if I could breathe life into you...
The Sri Lankan Elephant is endangered.
This beautifully adorned model elephant is the diminutive Sri Lankan elephant without which no religious ceremony is complete. My colleague, a Sri Lankan native brought this for me as a gift last time she went home.
The incessant questions I am asked about it whenever I have visitors over at my place led me to read a bit more about these beautiful creatures, and it is sad to learn that their numbers are depleting at an alarming rate. The debate of whether this decline is due to a natural culling of nature, or if man's influence is not counter to the 'design' of things rages on.
Neways, I just thought to celebrate my new camera by taking a photo of this symbolic creature.
