I. The Moral Meaning of Elk
1. Elk is a magic and auspicious thing. It is not only the object of hunting for the ancestors, but also the important sacrifice in totems and rituals of worship. It also becomes the symbol of vigorous vitality and the symbol of promotion and prosperity.
2. Elaphurus davidianus is a rare animal in the world and belongs to the family Deer. Because it has a head like a horse, a horn like a deer, a hoof like an ox, and a tail like a donkey, its name is different. Fourth, it does not seem to have the meaning of mystery and happiness.
4. Historical Records: From the Spring and Autumn Period and the Warring States Period to the Qing Dynasty, the ancients kept a constant record of elk. It is not only the object of hunting for ancestors, but also an important sacrifice in religious ceremonies. Mencius describes that “when Mencius saw King Liang Hui and the king was standing on the marsh, Gu Hongyan Elk said,”The wise are happy to do it.”This proves that at least in the Zhou Dynasty, reindeer had been domesticated in the Royal garden.
