Elephant Sunday


This is Demetrius I, Greco-Bactrian King, wearing an elephant's scalp as a hat. Because he is so badass. Although it is extremely gross, I bet it made him stand out in a crowd. I mean, not just any old person can wear an elephant as a hat.

A note on practicalities
Elephant's heads are enormous. So either Demetrius's head was super big, meaning that any old elephant's head was a pretty good fit for him, or he had a normal size head, and was wearing a baby elephant's scalp as a hat. For some reason, wearing a baby elephant as a hat seems way grosser than wearing an adult elephant as a hat.
