    Lightbulb Septembre 2017: Elephant and Camel Riders from Charkkhari and Nabha Dogs

    Finally most of you voted for the Charkkhari elephant. So I'm going for this state for the next Durbar elephant. I also found a photo of the Charkkhari Camel Riders that will go very well with the group.

    A detail of the howda's front and Maharaja. Check the exquiste embroidery on his shoulder. And the curvy front of the howda.

    The elephant's face. One of the main reasons to choose the elephant. I found a wonderful (and fully helpful) drawing made by Raven Hill, who descrbes the pattern and colors. Exquisite work. It's slightly different that the design on the face at the Main Procession; that is mainly because he probably draw it during a visit to their camp and not during the parade.
    The leopard looks black on the photo because yellow photographed dark (as well as the red color). But it was actually painted like a real leopard . If you look carefully at the photo you will notice the spots, a bit darker than the body of the animal.

    The escort guards, so beautiful. I particularly like in this photo how clearly you can see their shoes in detail.

    Another elephant shot. Also, more detail of the guards.
