The Four Friends Silk Wall Hanging 42x68cm (TRAWH46) AUD $39.50

This beautiful hand crafted Tibetan wall hanging is of the highest quality and made from embroidered silk and cotton. The illustrations portray the Four Friends from an ancient Tibetan fable. The tale describes how an elephant, a monkey, a hare and a partridge - once lived beneath a great Banyan tree in the Himalayan foothills. They were discussing the tree and how to harvest its fruit. The elephant remembered how the tree was very small when he was a baby. The monkey said that it was a bush the size of his body when he was young. The hare described how he had licked the dew off the leaves of the tree when it was a small shrub. Finally the bird spoke telling of how he had one swallowed the original seed and how this mighty tree had actually sprouted from his droppings. The partridge was honoured as the eldest and senior in rank to the hare, the monkey and the elephant. Through their proper age ranking and harmonious cooperation they harvested the fruit. This wonderful symbolism is meant to attract harmony and cooperation into your home and daily life.
