The puppets of Nantes

It is called Performing Arts and it deserves the "Arts" appellative.

I was in awe when I saw this photos & videos of the "Giant puppets" that walk thru Nantes (France) at the celebration of Verne's 100th anniversary.

The spectacle started Thursday, when they placed what it seemed to be some kind of spaceship fallen from the sky. Perfect idea an setting to celebrate the anniversary of the great vissionary. They worked out the details in such a manner as to look like it had crashed on Saint-Pierre Square braking the stones from the ground.

Then next day the spaceship opens and from inside comes out...

Don't miss it,it is beautiful!.
