It looks like a machine but acts like a mammal…and public transportation. Inspired by a prop from a street theater company (which was, in turn, an homage to Jules Verne's mechanical pachyderm in The Steam House) the Great Elephant is 12 meters high, weighs 45 tons, can carry 49 people on its back for a 45-minute promenade along the Loire River, and is powered by the motor from a city bus. But the not-in-Kansas-anymore part is that it trumpets, wags its tail, blinks its eyes, sprays people with water from its trunk, and has been known to pee on the sidewalk. The beast is but one of the Machines of the Isle of Nantes, a sculptural and mechanical oasis of whimsical creatures inspired by Nantes native, Jules Verne, housed in what was until recently a decommissioned shipyard and industrial wasteland.


(they're cheating a wee bit but legs are a terribly inefficient means of locomotion).

If anyone is interested in more pictures like the ones I posted earlier of the rodeo I just made a webpage with a bunch more:

I don't really like the calf roping and steer wrestling, but the other events I don't mind.
