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.
Main Procession. Jaisalmer and Dhar, south side of the Jumma
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.
Same photographer taken from gound level. Red Fort at the distance.
Picture taken from this photographer's point, looking northeast. The Retainers elephants, that came after the Main Procession. They were around 250 elephants.
Picture taken rom the same spot, looking northwest. The last part of the Main Procession turning to the third side of the Jumma.
