It has sometimes been described as a leogryph (part-lion and part-griffin),with some bird-like features, with the trunk referred to as a proboscis. The yali is said to be a guardian creature, protecting human beings both physically and spiritually. It is regarded to be a fearless beast, possessing supremacy over the animal world. It is also believed to be the symbolic representation of man's struggle with the elemental forces of nature.
