White Elephant in the room – Mundane Monday

Mundane Monday Challenge is created to find beauty in almost everything.

The challenge is simple. Find beauty in everyday mundane things, capture the beauty and upload the photographs.


Seeing the cute figurine of a white elephant in the room made me chuckle. That’s not a very mundane item but I couldn’t resist clicking.

Elephant in the room” or ” Elephant in the living room ‘ is an English metaphorical idiom for an obvious truth that is going unaddressed. The idiomatic expression also applies to an obvious problem or risk no one wants to discuss and a “white elephant” is a possession which its owner cannot dispose of and whose cost, particularly that of maintenance, is out of proportion to its usefulness.

Well, that said, I don’t think the little elephant is such a huge possession, but maybe the owner has other problems that they are not willing to talk about 😉

  1. I would like to own the elephant for those days when someone will say to me “there is an elephant in the room.” and I would point and say “you are right, it is right there, I can see it” 🙂
