Yupppe... and this is created by well known performers «Royale de Luxe», making sculptures and street-theater.

When they started in my city (Toulouse), one of they first performance was to grill a car. It was the last one here...

In Nantes, they helped a pregnancy boat gave birth.

They are incredibly creative.

Especially appropriate as Jules Verne was born in Nantes, having been to his museum that's perched on the walls that bracket the Loire river. Likely an inspiration for the creators.
