The Mumakil or Oliphaunt to a hobbit, a large elephant-like creature used by the Haradrim in their assault of Minas Tirith
About this creation
This is my version of the Mumakil. It is obviously based on the Lego elephant with modifications to the tusks and other areas. The basket area went through many revisions to get to this point. I have three of these for my Battle of Minas Tirith.
This is a heads-on view, much like the Riders of Rohan would have seen at the Pelenor Fields. You can see the four curving tusks.

A rear view showing the back of the basket and the flag trailing.
