Question Incredibly Difficult Hieroglyphic Puzzle

Puzzle:






About:
This puzzle is engraved in the wall of Thunder Mountain High School. No one has solved it since it was constructed 7 years ago.
In an interview with a journalist, the creator said that other works of art in the school would also be needed to solve this puzzle. I will post other pieces of art around the school below as I receive them.

I've made two additions to your spreadsheet (added the meaning of the Chinese character xiang - elephant - and two possible meanings of the thing beneath the hand).

I feel that the puzzle meaning lies in the four center pieces, I may be wrong. Just a feeling
2 help to raise us and elevate us. Do all the tiles have meaning together or separately?
It seems funny that the tiles with no symbols surround the four similar tiles.

or 2 help to show or ring truth and bring us together and elevate us.
I may be wrong. Though I feel this is close to the meaning.
