Hundreds of people were gathered this Wednesday afternoon in front of a large steel door at the Nefs des Machines de l’Île in Nantes. An even greater agitation than at that time of the summer holidays. The reason? The return of the dragon horse Long Ma, a machine manufactured 10 years ago who comes back regularly for maintenance, and who fascinates the crowd every time.

The Magic of Machines

Built for the 50th anniversary of the restoration of diplomatic relations between France and China, This machine has traveled around the world. She returned to Nantes in 2022 for maintenance and every time she passes through the City of the Dukes, she attracts people.

This beautiful object, financed by a Chinese patron, weighs 45 tons and is 12 meters high. “We had put a red cross on the return date, confides Jessica, who came with her two children. I knew the machines when I was little and now, I look with my child’s eyes, we have this chance in Nantes to experience magic all the time.”

Several outings per day

Long Ma will make three sorties per day until July 21, and there should also be night openings, July 15, 20 and 21. These large legs unfold on the forecourt, next to the elephant, enough to impress the public who have gathered for the occasion. Moreover, the Machines de l’Île company does not communicate the precise times of release to avoid there being too many people at that time.
