Truly one of our very favorite finds from the artisans in Thailand, we uncovered a set of three colorful Thai royal white elephants crafted from inlaid mother of pearl and exquisitely decorated in a variety of colors. Elephants have always played an integral part in Thai culture and Thai history and are considered sacred and a symbol of royal power. All Thai kings had a stable of rare white elephants and the animals once decorated the national flag and currency. Only ten years ago Thailand still had 4000 elephants. Nowadays only 2500 remain.
