One of our key trends for spring is Talisman, and an enduring talisman for love, friendship and memory is the elephant. Elephants are a unique animal in that they possess immense size and power, but are gentle, loving and loyal. One of the most intelligent animals, elephants have an incredible memory and can recognise friendly places and faces years later. In times of drought, the elephant remembers all of the water holes from which it has drank. When it has strayed from the herd, the elephant remembers how to find its own; hence the popular saying “an elephant never forgets”. For this reason the elephant talisman gives you the power of recall. In times of personal and spiritual drought, the elephant reminds you how to replenish your soul. In times of loneliness, the elephant reminds you where you can find your friends. In timeless of aimless wandering, the elephant reminds you of your goals and sets you on course to fulfill your aspirations.
