This white Elephant is seated on a lotus blossom and is adorned with bright flowers. I was inspired to make this white Elephant after reading about the Buddha's mother, who dreamt that a white Elephant gave her a gift of a lotus on the eve of giving birth. She would make a wonderful gift for a new mother, or someone on the verge of creating a new life for themselves.
I sculpted her by hand with a custom-blended polymer compound blended with iridescent glitter. She has glass eyes and her seated height is between 5- and 6-inches tall.
You will receive the exact same figurine in the photos, and she is ready-to-ship. She'll be on her way within two business days of payment. She will arrive in a handsome gift box with a descriptive card, ready for giving or receiving. All of my Poupettes are sculpted by hand, one at a time, and stamped on the underside with my maker's mark.
As soon as payment is received, I'll confirm the shipping date. You'll receive shipping confirmation once she's on her way, and a tracking number, if available for your country.
1-3 business days
