This is a hand carved ceramic item APPROXIMATELY 3 INCHES TALL AND 4 INCHES WIDE.
The elephant was an original sculpture that was made into a custom mold. When creating an elephant, a special clay is poured into the mold and allowed to set. The piece is then carved, fired, painted, and fired again. It is a laborious process that requires a great amount of time, skill, and attention to detail. Each elephant is made individually to ensure product quality. Each one is truly a work of art.
