Nessie?!: Sea-Serpent Skeleton Installed In French River

January 8, 2014


This is the giant aluminum sea serpent skeleton designed by artist Huang Yong Ping and installed in the Loire River where it empties into the Bay of Biscay near Nantes, France. It was not modeled after a real sea serpent. Although it looks like it may have been modeled after-- "Let me guess, your penis?" Haha, so you have seen it before!

Keep going for a several more shots.





Thanks to Ida, who's afraid to swim in any body of water that isn't chlorinated because of those little fish that try to colonize your butt.

    If I was a kid and I saw that I would be genuinely terrified and fascinated. Very cool.

    Now THIS is the kind of thing I want to see in the background of my Killer Instinct/Primal Rage games.

    Seems to me that during high tide some could get hurt pretty badly on those aluminum spikes. But what the hell, what are a few skewered kids in the face of "art?"

    Because I'm sure absolutely no one thought of that during the drawn-out process of red tape, permits, and safety inspections required to install such a piece.

    So using your logic, installing an attraction in a place which once had nothing attrative will only further repell people? imbecile

    It's in a place where the Loire's current is quite strong, and near to some industrial sites, so you don't really want to bath there, no real risk.

    It looks like a big snake skeleton.
