This bronze Elephant
was found in Trowulan Jawa Timur.
It is common knowledge that the population in Trowulan is born with a strong artistic side and culture inherited from the ancestors of the Majapahit Kingdom . .
Trowulan is a village in Mojokerto, in the Indonesian province of East Java. It is surrounded by an archaeological site covering approximately 100 square kilometres. It has been suggested it was the site of the eponymous capital city of the Majapahit Empire, which is described by Mpu Prapanca in the 14th-century poem Nagarakretagama and in a 15th-century Chinese source. It was razed due to the invasion of Girindrawardhana to defeat Kertabhumi in 1478. After this event Majapahit's capital moved to Daha.
Older research at Trowulan has concentrated on monumental remains: temples, tombs, and a bathing place.
