This awesome mechanical wooden cephalopod was created back in 2007 by phenomenal French street theatre company Royal de Luxe. Called “Le Calmar Geant a Retropropulsion” (“The Giant Squid with Reverse Thrust”), the gorgeous squid was just one of an assortment of incredible creatures created for a project entitled Les Machines de l’le de Nantes.

Words cannot express how much we’d like to ride this squid.
