Symbols are an important part of art, humans can speak through symbols in a way that words may be lacking. Language has a tendency to fall short sometimes. Each symbol, each plant, each layer, in these pieces has a purpose, an unspoken meaning towards the larger whole of the story.
When the Shapeshift DAO was created and I began dreaming up this project, I was very excited to revisit this elephant. In the early days, this elephant was a part of the Shapeshift brand that briefly lived on the website. This beautiful origami elephant, friends with the original Shapeshift Fox, has been hidden from the world since and I am excited to share it again today in a new way.
Elephants are amazing animals with deep intelligence, they mourn the loss of their loved ones and they have subsonic hearing, which means they can hear vibrations on the Earth that have traveled for miles.
