  2. The elephant

    The huge elephant has by nature what is rarely found in man; that is Honesty, Prudence, Justice, and the Observance of Religion; inasmuch as when the moon is new, these beasts go down to the rivers, and there, solemnly cleansing themselves, they bathe, and so, having saluted the planet, return to the woods. And when they are ill, being laid down, they fling up plants towards Heaven as though they would offer sacrifice. —They bury their tusks when they fall out from old age.—Of these two tusks they use one to dig up roots for food; but they save the point of the other for fighting with; when they are taken by hunters and when worn out by fatigue, they dig up these buried tusks and ransom themselves.

Model Food Dishes For the Afterlife
China
Ming dynasty, about AD 1450–1600
These model food dishes present the ingredients for a feast for the soul in the afterlife and give us an idea of the types of food enjoyed by the living in China, in about AD 1450–1600.
The foods are arranged as five main meats (a goat, a pig, a rabbit, a fish and a goose) and five accompanying dishes (pomegranates, peaches, water chestnuts, persimmons and mantou [steamed bread]).
They are arranged in groups of four as the Chinese word ‘si’ meaning four has the same pronunciation as, but different tone from, the word ‘si’ meaning death.
