    After all it's still just a bunch of bit's - no magic :-)

    Done. But personally I prefer the first one.

    What  I  try  to  do  is  to  have the jewel and the elephant
    wheighted equally - mean that noone has the majority  of  the
    entire  symbol.   I can surely cover it up to invisibility in
    the jewel, but that's not the target.

    And I understood it that way on first call. But that has some
    problems.   In the case of the pink panther it's a movie, and
    if I remember right the perspective is rotating slowly around
    it. If you have a crystal material with a refractional index,
    a modelled elephant  inside  would  only  become  visible  if
    viewed  nearly  from  the  top. Especially in the case of the
    wanted little powered by logos, because the elephant must  be
    big enough to not to shrink down to 3-4 pixels.  But then you
    don't identify the entire thing any longer as a  jewel,  it's
    just some round crystal, nothing else.

    PostgreSQL isn't a joke. It's IMHO closer to the one I choose
    than to flying DUMBO or any other silly one in comic  strips.

    Never underestimate the power of such a majestic creature! So
    never let it look cute and harmless.
