    OMG that's beautiful!

    *pedant mode*
    It's an African elephant though, a sultan would have an indian elephant as any fule kno. Also the dark patches under his eyes indicate that he's in must. Which would mean that he would be an extremely randy, angy and out of control elephant!

    what if it's an African elephant which was given to the sultan as tribute by some conquered African tribe? Eh? You didn't think of that did you? :p

    Wait a minute - during a time of war, some foreigners are giving us a 'gift' of a giant wooden elephant? How stupid do they think we are? ;)
