What a fantastic piece of art!!! I have to ask, what's the material? Hard to tell, at least for me.

Great - elephants have a special place in Khmer society. Members of the royal family ride in especially-selected elephants (in Thailand the white elephants are chosen). I am sure it's like that in India, too.

Beautiful elephant!
Were you allowed to sit on it? I feel it's just begging to be taken for a ride.

WHat an a stunning piece of sculputre. The only thing that might come close in London is the big Hindu temple in Neasden. It is amazing. Happy WW

To Ms. Indrani

You are heartily welcome to my blogs. I would be visiting your blogspace regularly, as it has interested me.

You have put up neat and fine photos of Rajasthan.

Very pretty! I didn't think it was possible to make an elephant look delicate!
