Adorning the shrine are a pair of decorative wood carvings (restored) of an elephant, as done by someone who has obviously only heard of elephants, and not a very good description either.

This is very interesting! Do you know why this shrine wanted elephant carvings...?

This photo reminded me of a carving I saw in Nagasaki.
I've uploaded the photo I took if you care to take a look. Thanks.
