  • Erawan has the meaning of water, clouds, and rainbow. It is the sacred name of a white elephant with 33 heads. The traditional tale has it that Erawan is the vehicle of Indra, a Hindu highest god.
  • Erawan can travel freely in the realm of the Earth and Heaven. Erawan went with Indra to take care of human and their well-being. Indra's enemy is the god of thunder, who creates draught in the realm of the Earth, so Erawan uses its trunk to deliver water from heaven to Earth.
  • Therefore, Erawan represents the abundance and the goodness of Indra, and is usually represent as a 3-headed instead of 33 heads that it has in the legend for aesthetic purposes in art forms.
