Elephant and Turtle on Battle Field

Introduction: Elephant and Turtle on Battle Field

Long long time ago an elephant named Gaja, was in all in his youth and majesty powerful, claimed himself King of the world. One day he found an old turtle, Kasu, sitting silently, his eyes closed meditating. Gaja with his grand trunk rumbled at the Kasu and ordered him to bow in front of him and hence forth he put his faith in him. Kasu was an knowledgeable turtle, he held his patience. Gaja angered by this lifted Kasu with his trunk and threw him in the air. Majestically land on the Earth, Kasu took his position and stood in an defensive posture. And now the war begins !!!

Step 1: Ideation

An abstract form of turtle was chosen by brainstorming.

Both elephant and turtle have a natural strong armor. Turtle with its strong exterior and Elephant with its ivory teeth.

Finally I arrived at these forms.

Step 2: Material

6" X 4" X 4" of wood

10" X 8" MDF sheet

Sand paper

Step 3: Tools

Hand saw




Step 4: Mark the Cut Out the Negative Portion

Mark the desired shape on the pieces and cut it with hand saw or an all cut.

Step 5: Chizzle and Sand

Now chizzle out the hollow part of both elephant and turtle.

Now sand each elephant and turtle and apply wax for a shiny and smooth surface.

Cut the MDF sheet in desired shape and sand it at a few places.

Your Knights are ready for battle !!!

    hi! I have not thought of it yet. Let's try, it might go like this...
    As the two majesties, Gaja and Kasu fight on the battle field, there is a huge turbulence on Earth, the sky seems to fall, the vibes reach the edge of the universe. The King of the universe summons Garuda, the Eagle to make peace. Garuda comes to earth, sees there is chaos all around, animals feared. Garuda is a very powerful eagle, screams loud as to shake the ground below the battle ground, earth cracks. The warriors sink a level below earth, still ablaze in anger and rage, the battle continues.
    Seems there is no stopping them. Now Garuda starts flapping his wings to creates two big cyclones, one for each warrior. Two of them trapped in the cyclones, storm towards each other, cutting the cyclone. Garuda compasses cyclones on each on one wing and throws them on different planets.
    Gaja and Kasu come back to earth. They were devastated by the look what their rage had made the earth. The irreplaceable damage they inflicted on earth and the living. The power is of no worth if it's not put to a proper use. What's meditation for, Kasu thought ?
    Both thought let's put an end to this. Let's put of power and patience to a proper use. Let's get the glory back to earth. Let's make this place a better place to live. They together support earth. Kasu supports Gaja on his exterior, Gaja holds the earth.

    Earth supports a stronger life now!!!
