Activity discovery

long ma

A new machine to admire during the maintenance of the Grand Eléphant ...

During the maintenance of the Big Elephant, Long Ma, the dragon horse will be visible, asleep, under the Nefs from Monday, November 13th. Like a sculpture, you can discover it, or rediscover it until the holidays of February 2018.

Weighing 45 tons for a height of 12 meters, the long-horse strap called Long Ma was born from the pen of François Delarozière, having inspired a Chinese legge. This imposing creature took shape three years ago, in 2014, during the 50th anniversary of Franco-Chinese relations.

Being able to blow smoke and spit fire, Long Ma still needs a period of hibernation, from November 13 until the beginning of February 2018.

Come discover this truly fantastic work of art! We give you an appointment under the Nefs.

from 13 November 2017
