The road theater group referred to as La Machine revived considered one of its legendary beasts for an ongoing present in Toulouse. “Lengthy Ma,” an infinite dragon-horse hybrid weighing 45 tons and standing 11 meters tall, was initially unleashed in Beijing in 2014 and now joins a minotaur and gigantic spider for an ongoing exhibition at La Halle within the French metropolis. Every day by Could 8, a crew of artists animates the mechanical creature, which might be seen trotting, galloping, and rearing upward by the streets whereas she greets her equally huge companions.

Able to spitting smoke and water, the fire-breathing “Lengthy Ma” is comprised of a mix of metal, wooden, leather-based, blown glass, golden leaves, horsehair, and textiles. She additionally cradles a Chinese language temple impressed by the Forbidden Metropolis on her again, which is sufficiently big for 35 individuals to affix her on her every day adventures.

Tickets to come across the explosive character can be found on the exhibition website, and you’ll see extra of La Machine’s puppet-like creations in motion on Instagram.
