Elephantine gods of wisdom reside at the heart of every library, with skin the leathered brown of old books and trunks that sway like willows, a book or a cup of tea in each of their many limbs, surrounded by the offerings of desperate students.

An elephant Library Goddess, inspired by the Hindu Ganesha. It accompanies my prose piece, "The New Gods," which was originally published by the Eunoia Review and which will appear in the Strange New Worlds anthology.
