Art & Culture
The elephant has long played a central role in all aspects of Thai art and culture. In culture, the elephant permeates Thai language, ranging from pithy folk expressions to classical poetry. Thai Buddhism frequently uses the elephant in allegories, particularly in many lovely Jataka tales, where the elephant is nearly always kind and benevolent but sometimes a fierce power to be controlled. Ganesha, the elephant-headed but human-bodied god of Brahminism, has long been revered. The elephant was, before the influence of Western weaponry, a major force in Thai warfare. The elephant has long figured in the visual arts, particularly in splendid old Thai temple murals but even today as a common symbol in logos and advertising. Thai music and literature also abound with elephant themes. read Art & Culture
