VIDEO: The Sultan's Elephant (A 20' Tall Puppet)

Reposted From: May 28, 2010

Wikipedia Says... "This was part of the The Sultan's Elephant, a show created by the Royal de Luxe theatre company in France from 2004 to 2005.

It had hundreds of moving parts and scores of pumping pistons... (22 in the trunk alone)...The elephant no longer exists: Helen Marriage of Artichoke, the company that produced the London performance, said "Royal de Luxe were so fed up with being invited all over the world to perform The Sultan's Elephant, they just destroyed it."
