I had the fortune to stumble across "The Sultan's Elephant" this weekend. Arriving back from Vegas bleary-eyed and jet-lagged, I was browsing through the paper and saw an article about it. I headed to St. James's Park on Sunday afternoon and there was the little girl.
Hurrying towards Regent Street to meet some friends for a coffee, I was stopped in my tracks by a massive crowd. Turning around, I realised the problem... a 42 tonne elephant was walking towards us.
An utterly bizarre and fantastic piece of street art.
Naquada has a nice writeup
