Giant girl puppet walks streets of London!

Extraordinary.

“May 7, 2006

The Sultan’s Elephant, a giant piece of street theatre by French group Royal de Luxe, has been entertaining Londoners over the course of this weekend. The show started on Thursday, when a ‘crashed rocket’ was in place at Victoria Place. On Friday, an oversized marionette of a young girl emerged from the rocket and met with the giant mechanised elephant. Over the course of the weekend, these two giant puppets have been parading around London streets, closed especially for the event.”

    This truly was the most amazing thing I have seen. What makes this so extrordinary is the fact that this is real. This is a real piece of art and a feat of engineering in the form of a mythically sized little girl. Where did this take place and who put this together?

    I just found this… It was in London. Amazing.
