Terrace of Elephants

An imperial hunt is in the somber forests of the realm. There are formidable elephants. The forest in which they travel is impenetrable to all but tiny creatures, able to squeeze their smallness between the fissures of the undergrowth, and to the biggest animals, which crush chasms for their passage in the virgin vegetation.
