Made in France, the elephant is one of the Machines of the Isle of Nantes, an artistic & cultural project created in the warehouses of the former shipyards in Nantes, France. The elephant is 12 meters high, 8 meters wide & can carry 49 passengers at a rate of 1/3 kilometer per mile, along the banks of the Loire River. It was the intention of the artists to conceptualize travel through time “at the crossroads of the imaginary worlds of Jules Verne & the mechanical universe of Leonardo da Vinci.”
