Eight Pair of Elephants: Jaisalmer - Dhar

None of this elephants has been made yet. Howdas with roofs are quite complicated to look good and arrive safely to the collector. I will definitely make them, but not so soon.

Enlargement of the previous photo. Two details I wanted to share. Curiously, one of the only pictures where the maharaja of Alwar sat down, during the parade. He was probably tired by this point. Second, check the photographer on the right. He has a privileged spot.
