At his presentation at the Readers Studio 2010, Robert Place interpreted this card as follows (at least, this is how I remember it): the four vessels represent emotional/psychological structures (i.e. habits, tendencies, preferences) created by the conscious and subconscious. Over time they build up and become very strong. They become so strong that they can support an elephant. However, the elephant is stuck, can't go anywhere, showing that if we become too comfortable, to set in our ways, we won't go anywhere or improve.

I was so glad to hear this interpretation because this image has attracted me and puzzled me since I first got the deck many moons ago.
