I hate waste and it makes me almost sick to my stomach the amount of wood and metals that people put in their trash cans. Most of what is thrown away can be reused and reclaimed in some form or another. (My neighbor is one of the worst offenders!) So if you have alot of room or feeling creative here is a reclaimed wood sculpture fit for Sultans and Kings! This mechanical elephant actually works with 45 tons of reclaimed wood and steel. You can visit and take a ride on the Isle of Nantes in France.
So for many of us it is a trifle big to be in the back yard, but scale it down to make a mini mechanical elephant- remember the holiday season is coming up.
