Elephant  |  Design & Fabrication

Denver Zoo approached us to help create a parade of life-sized animal puppets to help share their conservation story. One of the species we built was the Asian Elephant.

The challenge: Build a single-operator, life-sized elephant. 

The solution: Create a lightweight, wind-transparent puppet on a pulley system with a wheeled base. 

In line with Denver Zoo’s commitment to environmental sustainability, we crafted this Asian Elephant from a combination of found, reusable and sustainable materials, such as reclaimed burlap coffee bags, cane and bicycle parts.
