    Lightbulb Elephant of Bahawalpur

    Hi guys,

    Just to let you know that I'm already working on the new elephant that I will be bringing to the Chicago show: The Elephant of Bahawalpur.

    I'm sooo busy working on the sculpture and painting for the Durbar collectors, that I don't have much time for the process posts; but I have the pictures and I will show them when the elephant is released.

    This is a beautiful elephant with a very entricate embroidery on the clothes, absolutely beautiful. But the main feature (in my opinion) is the maharaja. I'm focusing on him specially.

    The Nawab of Bahawalpur wore a richly embroidered coat during the Main Procession, and a necklace of extremely large rubies. His was a muslim state of 15000 square miles in the north-west of india. His name was Muhammad Bahawal Khan V and became the Nawab of Bahawalpur in 1899.
