The trumpeting of the elephants is a sound of rejoicing that erupts with the appearance of their king, their master. The elephants call other animals and birds to celebrate, with the occasion being life itself! It is fitting that elephants should lead this symphony. When the world was young, the elephant had strength and power over all. He also embodied wisdom, longevity, loyalty, tolerance, and compassion. In Greek tradition, a lyre made from antelope horns was the instrument of Apollo, the god of prophecy and music. Playing it, Orpheus tamed wild animals, and charmed trees and mountains.
