On Kings and Elephants

Abstract:
In the “On Kings and Elephants” series, an accented robotic narrator reads different English translations of the ancient story of the Four Blind Men and the Elephant. Over the centuries, this story has traveled across cultures. A warning against the trappings of ego, religion, and certainty.

On the Blind Men and the Affair of the Elephant (Text by Sanā’ī, 12th Century), The Elephant in the Dark (Text by Rumi, 13th Century) & Four Blind Men and an Elephant (Text by Ramakrishna, 19th Century)
