The Machines of the Isle of Nantes (Les Machines de l’île) is a fantastic, imaginative project by  François Delarozière  and Pierre Orefice located in Nantes, France.  It contains many gigantic mechanical interactive sculptures, including the above Grand Elephant.  These works of art were created, according the wikipedia, “visualising a travel-through-time world at the crossroads of the “imaginary worlds” of Jules Verne and the mechanical universe of Leonardo da Vinci.”
