The Sultan's Elephant was a show created by the Royal de Luxe theatre company, involving a huge moving mechanical elephant, a giant marionette of a girl and other associated public art installations. In French it was called La visite du sultan des Indes sur son éléphant à voyager dans le temps (literally, "Visit From The Sultan Of The Indies On His Time-Travelling Elephant"). The show was commissioned to celebrate the centenary of Jules Verne's death, by the two French cities of Nantes and Amiens, funded by a special grant from the French Ministry of Culture and Communication. The show was performed at various locations around the world between 2005 and 2006.
In loving memory...and in celebration of the life of Crminks!
For "Crminks." For you.

cool/weird. I'm not quite sure how to feel about the giant puppet girl.
Haha, I really have no words for this except: What the hell did I just watch? Awesome!
This is not a word I use often, but honestly, this is inspiring. What wonder in her step...
The song is perfect for this mesmerizing work. I would love to see it in face-to-puppet. :)
From the page: "On the morning of Sunday 7th May the little girl giant woke up at Horseguards Parade in London, took a shower from the time-traveling elephant and wandered off to play in the park..."
how comfortingly surreal...
