The Elephants

So what WAS the object I was holding in my previous post? This Christmas gift is a luminaria. Looks pretty plain now, doesn't it?

But look what happens when I put a candle in it!





“They say that somewhere in Africa the elephants have a secret grave where they go to lie down, unburden their wrinkled gray bodies, and soar away, light spirits at the end.”

It is a wonderful piece. I like the glow of light through the sides of it. I have never seen anything like this. Thanks for sharing it.
