An elephant and a donkey (1900s) that I found at the brocante, part of the French "creche" = a nativity set.
Aren't they adorable?
"An artistic and poetic movement or style using symbolic images and indirect suggestion to express mystical ideas, emotions, and states of mind." Via the Dictionary.
Will they, or do they, ever get along? Both from another world of opinion. Who stands in between the two, a snake, a rabbit, a rat, a saint?
Did they ever see eye to eye?
Have they ever disagreed more?
They want the same thing, don't they? Is it that they follow different paths to reach the same point? I use to believe that, or at least hoped that were true, that we sought love, peace, courage, understanding and acceptance, and much more. Maybe I was naive, or a snowflake as I have heard.
How hard it is for me to accept that, "love is love", is not love to some.
And so they stand,
on the same ground and sing,
"...This land is your land, this land is my land..."
All this because two nativity pieces, an elephant and a donkey, were found at a brocante. I plan on putting them on my online shop, I cannot separate the two because they do belong together.
