A tree is one of the most sacred motifs of folk art. In addition to its inherent sacredness the artist has added to the form of this tree the auspicious motif of elephant. With trunks on both sides this elephant form is more auspicious. The tree seems to rise over the elephant. Apart, birds and devotee figures flanking around impart to it further sanctity.
