We got this as a gift from my parents-in-law. They visited Thailand a couple of years ago and they bought us this as a souvenir from Thailand. We were just married at that time and it would make a perfect home decor for us as a newly-wed. It's an elephant figure (like all we know that Thailand is famous for its Thai elephant) made from ceramic. I admire the details that the crafter made; every little details is made carefully that it looks so alive. The material looks pretty solid. The color combination is also great. It's heavy and big for a souvenir, actually. I wonder if my parents-in-law had any trouble in packaging and bringing it here. In fact, they also brought another for themselves... :) I put this Thai decor outside, thought that this would be great for ourdoor decor. We adore this and in fact some of our friends also adore it and they asked us where we got it. We're proud to have this kind of great outdoor decor.
