Earth & Universe. Historical engraving of an early Hindu idea of the Earth and Universe. The Earth was thought to be a hemishere supported by four immense elephants (which may symbolise the four elements - earth, fire, air and water). The elephants are standing on a giant tortoise (representing strength and eternity) floating on the surface of a universal ocean.
