    The elephant god is Ganesha, who is one of the best-known and most worshipped deities in Hinduism. Devotion to Ganesha is widely diffused and extends to Jains and Buddhists.

    “Although he is known by many attributes, Ganesha’s elephant head makes him easy to identify. Ganesha is widely revered as the remover of obstacles, the patron of arts and sciences and the deva of intellect and wisdom.”-Wiki

    The tiger is the symbol of the goddess Durga. She usually rides the tiger. she is a symbol of India’s Mother Nature, for she is the deification of Energy.

    The symbol on the flower is “Om”, a sacred sound and a spiritual icon in Dharmic religions. It is also a mantra in Hinduism, Buddhism and Jainism. It refers to Atman (soul, self within) and Brahman (ultimate reality, entirety of the universe, truth, divine, supreme spirit, cosmic principles, knowledge).

    In Hinduism the Peacock represents Mayura (Sanskrit word for peacock) and is one of the sacred birds of the Hindu mythology. It is referred to in a number of Hindu scriptures. The goddess “Saraswati” is the Hindu goddess usually represented with the peacock, symbol for of knowledge, music, arts, wisdom and learning (because of the eyes).

    The man with the parrot is god Kamadeva, also called Māra, is the Hindu god of human love or desire. He was like a Hindu cupid:
