This elephant comes with the same driver and body as the Essex MEPA23 elephant. As with all Essex elephants I've seen, the pose is very static. It's more like an elephant on the march than one being shot at by arrows. The howdah is a crenellated box with woodgrain on the lower parts and no texture on the crenellations. It appears to be held on with leather straps, but the straps aren't continued onto the body.
