"The Lord reigns, he is robed in majesty;
the Lord is robed in majesty and armed with strength;
indeed, the world is established, firm and secure."
"Majesty" is named for one of the attributes of God, just as the other pieces in the "Wild Series". This elephant is robed in a majestic skin and his presence conveys strength. His stance is indeed established, firm and secure.
