The Sultan's Elephant and The Little Girl Giant
The Sultan's Elephant is a show created by the Royal de Luxe theatre company, involving a huge moving mechanical elephant and a time-travelling girl, which has taken place in a few cities.
The Sultan's Elephant is made mostly of wood, and is operated by over ten puppeteers using a mixture of hydraulics and motors. It weighs 42 tons, as much as 7 African elephants.
Read the story behind the time-travelling elephant by downloading the four newspapers produced during the show.
Visit the flickr photos pool about the show.
