Recently this past May, massive crowds lined the streets of Nantes, France for three days to enjoy the epic scale mechanical marionettes of Royal de Luxe. The company was founded in 1979 by Jean Luc Courcoult, and has taken their street marionette show to several countries around the world. Watching their creations in action will provide you with a new scale to your understanding of anthropomorphism, and echo the magic of Pinocchio, one of the greatest stories ever told. Since the dawn of civilization, man has been fascinated by the idea of bringing inanimate objects to life, whether it be a wooden doll, a robot, or a monster named Frankenstein.
