Les Machines de l’ile de Nantes are massive mechanical animals on
exhibition in Nantes, France. Designed by François Delarozière and
Pierre Oreficee, the fantastic creatures in the menagerie include an
elephant, squid, Manta ray, and more. Dark Roasted Blend posted some
beautiful photos of the hydraulic beasties.
