Medieval Elephants

I just had to share these charming, ferocious, trumpet snouted elephants from Royal 16 G VII - Les Anciennes Hystoires Rommaines, 1375-1400. 

As Fiore might say:
I am the mighty elephant, I'm wrinkled, grey and large
I bear a castle on my back, as massive as a barge
I am the noble elephant, I do not bend my knees
I am the mighty elephant, I trumpet when I sneeze
