This one is very light weight almost like it's paper machet. I'm not real sure what it's made of, but it's lovely.
This one with it's young is hand carved. I don't know what the wood is, but I know I used to have some hand carved fruit from the Philipine Islands that was similar.
Another hand carved. These little guys are going in a circle:)
This mother and young are also hand carved. Actually they all are, even the Jade one's that I have.
This is hand carved Jade and believe it or not they're done by children in India. They have wooden tools to work with. Not only is it the larger elephant but if you look closely you'll see an elephant carved on the inside of the large elephant. These next few are all like that. Different poses and different sizes but all hand carved with wooden tools.
This is my favorite. Nan gave me this one first.
I have earrings, hair clips and bracelets of elephants too. I hope to continue to add to this collection and one day it will go to my Grandson who loves it.
