Elephant force and belongings are symbols to tell a story of a long-time relationship between human beings and elephants. In the past, the elephants were used in wars to protect the country, in religious ceremonies, and in rice paddies to move things. They are regarded as the country’s symbolic animal.
The painting presents the way of life that human beings and elephants mutually depend on each other. Sometimes, life is like being in a wide sea. We may face crises but life still goes on and we have to struggle to survive.
