Long Description:
Insolite, l’œuvre du sculpteur Francis Guyot n’était pourtant pas vouée à l’être à l’origine. C’est même un projet tout à fait sérieux que son auteur avait lancé à l’époque. La mobilisation et l’énergie déployées pour mener à bien cette aventure sont mêmes exemplaires.
On est au début des années 2000 et le sculpteur Francis Guyot imagine une œuvre monumentale pour rendre hommage aux travailleurs de la Manufacture d’armes de Châtellerault et au savoir-faire manuel.
Cet enorme objet est étrange dans le paysage et beaucoup ne comprennent pas son sens. On peut observer les véhicules descendant de la structure, ce sont bien de vrais voiture ce qui démontre l'énormité de cet objet. La découverte de cet objet à vraiment été une grosse surprise pour moi.

Unusual, the work of the sculptor Francis Guyot was however not destined to be at the origin. It is even a very serious project that its author had launched at the time. The mobilization and energy deployed to carry out this adventure are exemplary.
It is early 2000s and the sculptor Francis Guyot imagines a monumental work to pay tribute to the workers of the Weapon Manufacture de Châtellerault and manual skills. This ginormous object seem strange is this area & a lot of people do not understand its meaning. It is possible to see cars going down from this structure, It is real cars that proof the big size of this strange object. I was really surprise when I discovered this Object!
