Rows of elephant legs hung suspended around the plaza, shimmering in the noon-light like ghosts. In so many ways they were ghosts, vague remembrances of the creatures they had once been, ivoried by age.

Jordon stood talking to the artist. “Why would anybody want….” He motioned vaguely around, not wanting to speak the words.

“Elephants were once sacred animals. Many feel the totems bring great luck.”

Sighing, Jordon walked away. In only he had lived when elephants roamed the earth. That, now, would have been lucky.
