Rudraksha is a seed that is used as a prayer bead in Hinduism. The seeds are associated with the Hindu Lord Shiva and are commonly worn for protection and for chanting mantras such as Om Namah Shivaya. The seeds are primarily sourced from India, Indonesia and Nepal for jewellery and malas; they are valued similarly to semi-precious stones. Various meanings and interpretations are attributed to the beads with different numbers of segments or the locules of seed and rare or unique beads are highly prized and valuable.
The inspiration is primarily from the significance of Elephants in Thai Culture. Elephants are a traditional symbol of power and peace in Thailand, as well as a spiritual mentor for people of all walks of life. The elephant also symbolizes wisdom and loyalty and various other characteristics such as sensitivity, stability, intelligence and determination. Lotus Arts de Vivre embodies this belief in all our “elephant” designed products.
