Artsy fartsy symbolic explanation: The wise and patient elephant warrior (artist) protects the three muses, who inspire us all. At the center, is the rare Kadupul flower, native to Sri Lanka. This rare flower blooms at midnight and dies at dawn, much like the raw energy inside all artists that burn the midnight lamp, and work 'till sunrise. The elephant graveyard is the final resting place of all those artists that came before and died rich, or poor, doing what they love.
Man on the street explanation: Painting elephant armor, skulls and Muse decolletage is good times.
