Les Machines de l’Ile Nantes

I came across the machine-animals of Nantes at Dark Roasted Blend today. These creatures are made out of steel and wood and they can *move*! Some kind of remind me of Jules Vernes Nautilus (and the costumes of the musical The Lion King). The “Les Machines de l’Ile Nantes” exhibit looks incredible, the elephant (11m high!), squids and fishes by François Delarozière and Pierre Orefice are truly exceptional, just the right blend of machine and animal. Very poetic i thought.

Dark Roasted Blend also shows in the same post an old favourite of mine “The Sultan´s Elephant” a theatrical show which was created by Royal de Luxe. Truly magical. And their website is very worth a look.
