very verne

So this Jules-Vernian space capsule crash lands in Nantes, France...


... and its giant passenger emerges...


... then for reasons unknown to me a giant elephant appears.


It pretty much gets weirder from there...


... as these giant puppets walk around the city...


... assisted by their Lilliputian helpers...


.. who apparently needed to prod the elephant in the bum to get it to move.


Eventually the explorer returned to her spaceship...


... which then blasted her back to wherever she came from.


The elephant stayed here,of course... who ever heard of an elephant in a spaceship? Sheesh.

The whole thing was a part of the Jules Verne centenary being held in Nantes, France. The main picture galleries are here.

All weekend I was obsessively chanting this new Ganesha chant and listening to it on the iPod, and it was still twirling through my head when I clicked onto your site this morning. I love the elephant photos--thanks for sharing the Ganeshenergy! TT.

Have you seen 'Garden State'? The opening scene has this great moment of Ganesha zen where Zach Braff is sitting calmly in a plane that looks like it is going to crash and there's this calm voice singing "Sri vakratunda mahakaya, koti surya samaprabha, nirvighnam kurumedeva shubha karyeshu sarvada."
