Elephant Man Toy Theatre


I ran across an amazing original toy theatre production about real life personality, Joseph Merrick, better known as the "Elephant Man".  Created by artist and writer Scot D. Ryersson, the detail of the the creation is amazing!
Joseph Merrick: A Three Act Tragedy (inspired by the legend of Joseph Merrick, the Elephant Man) – Handmade, antiqued cardboard & paper vellum Victorian toy theatre, based upon an original design in the collection of the Theatre Museum, London; battery-operated miniature white lights; LED flickering candle; pewter figurine.
