Sultans Elephant Street Theatre in London

http://www.thesultanselephant.com/

Created by theatrical magicians Royal de Luxe, it tells the story of a sultan from far-off lands and his magical, time-travelling mechanical elephant.

A massive hydraulically-operated elephant was roaming London's streets as part of a free four-day theatre festival this weekend.

The Sultan's Elephant is taller than Admiralty Arch at just over 36ft tall and weighs a whopping 42 tonnes. He travels at one mile an hour, and is accompanied by quite a loud band.

His trunk is operated by 22 pistons and around 80 square yards of leather alone was used for its ears.
The elephant can move sideways like a crab and all its other body parts also move, including his tongue and lips.

Inspired by the stories of Jules Verne, he has been brought to the UK by French arts company Royal de Luxe.
