There are many Ashante proverbs regarding the power, majesty and ways of elephants : one is 'the person who walks behind the elephant doesn't get wet from the dew on the grass'. However most Akan have not seen living elephants for over 200 years, but the idea and spirit of the elephant thrives and is sustained by their folklore and art.
