The Mystery of the Winged Elephant posted 07 Sep 2005, 23:09 by Nonman, Commoner

Those of who enjoy the appearance of a proper library (that is, one without dust jackets on your hardbacks) I am sure have noticed the curious appearance of a what appears to be a Winged Elephant on the front cover of the Warrior Prophet. I suspect it is on the Prince of Nothing as well but having loaned the book out mere moments after its completion I am unable to verify this. I racked my memory, hoping to find some sort of link between this symbol and the Three Seas and came up completely empty. Safe for a brief discussion of the mastodons of Nilhamesh I cannot even think of the reference to an elephant like creature much less a winged one. Could anyone shed some light on the subject? view post

It's hard to tell if it's wings or just big ears. The only connection i can think of is The Tusk being that of an elephant. view post

Sometimes it's best not to ask the question to an answer you don't want to hear, eh? view post

Sorry if my response seemed curt. I was simply in a hurry and didn't have enough time to come up with a proper way to make fun of you...j/k. :twisted: :D view post

Blast, there goes my theory. Well, I could of course pretend that is really an emblem chosen by Bakker himself to further accentuate the nuance of the Three Seas. view post
