20 Monsters Of The Isle Of Nantes [Pic]

Submitted by: kitteh9lives 3 years ago in


Many countries highlight their unique landmarks (Sydney Opera House in Australia, The Leaning Tower of Pisa in Italy) or cultural celebrations (or the Rio Carnival in Brazil & Running Of The Bulls in Spain) as a reason to visit. But Nantes, the 6th largest city in France has an entirely different way to lure tourists to their region.

Tucked inside several warehouses that were formerly used as shipyards, sits an exhibition titled Machines of the Isle that will genuinely blow your mind.




The creation of two artists Franois Delarozire & Pierre Orefice, their vision is based upon Visualizing a travel-through-time world at the crossroads of the imaginary worlds of Jules Verne and the mechanical universe of Leonardo Da Vinci. Theyve built 3 major machines, The Great Elephant back in 2007, The Marine Worlds Carousel in 2012 and The Heron Tree which will be available to the public in 2014.

Delarozire & Orefice have brought other creatures to life like giant spiders, deadly Venus fly traps, pterodactyls and even fish that could swallow you whole all make an appearance as you wind your away around their world.
